University Students' Knowledge about and Attitudes toward Homosexuality.
Wells, Joel W.; Franken, Mary L.
Journal of Humanistic Education and Development, v26 n2 p81-95 Dec 1987
Assessed university students' knowledge about homosexuality in relation to their degree of homonegativism, i.e., physical, social, and emotional distancing from homosexuals, and selected personal variables. Respondents who were better informed about homosexuality proved less homonegative, particularly those with homosexual friend or family member. Found differences by sexual orientation and college major, but not by sex or religion. (Author/KS)
