Abstract This study explores the intricate dynamics of parental neglect, emotional regulation, and psychological adjustment among queer and straight young adults in India. Using a sample of 108 participants, including 56 from the queer (LGBTQ) group and 52 from the heterosexual (straight) group. Statistical analyses of Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient and Independent Samples T-Test were conducted to test hypotheses. Results reveal a significant negative correlation between parental neglect and psychological adjustment. However, no significant relationship was found between parental neglect and emotional regulation, suggesting a complex interplay between these factors. Additionally, the study examines specific forms of neglect, including physical, emotional, cognitive, and supervisory neglect, highlighting their differential impact on psychological adjustment. Furthermore, analysis of emotional regulation strategies reveals that cognitive reappraisal shows a weak negative correlation with adjustment, expressive suppression demonstrates a weak positive correlation, underscoring the importance of adaptive regulation strategies in promoting well-being. Interestingly, the study finds a significant difference in parental neglect between queer and straight young adults, emphasizing the unique challenges faced by LGBTQ individuals. However, no significant differences are observed in emotional regulation or psychological adjustment between the two groups. Overall, these findings contribute to our understanding of the complex interplay between parental neglect, emotional regulation, and psychological adjustment among young adults in India. By identifying key factors influencing mental health outcomes, the study informs the development of targeted interventions to promote resilience and foster supportive environments for all young adults, irrespective of sexual orientation.
