This study explores how an environmental factor (i.e., a perceived open climate) shapes lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) employees' job satisfaction and job anxiety through the mediating role of self-concealment. It also investigates the moderating role of self-acceptance. Results from 315 LGB employees supported the conclusion that a perceived open climate for minority sexuality increased job satisfaction and decreased job anxiety. The open climate–job anxiety relationship was mediated by self-concealment, and both stages of this mediation process were moderated by self-acceptance. These findings offer useful insights for counselors and managers to help LGB individuals improve their workplace psychological experiences.
