Attitudes Toward Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual College Students: The Contribution of Pluralistic Ignorance, Dynamic Social Impact, and Contact Theories.
Bowen, Anne M.; Bourgeois, Martin J.
Journal of American College Health, v50 n2 p91-96 Sep 2001
Surveyed college dormitory residents regarding their personal comfort with lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) students. Results highlighted widespread pluralistic ignorance. Students typically rated themselves as less anti-gay than other students. Building of residence significantly predicted students' attitudes. Perceiving that one or two LGB students lived on the same floor or in the same building related to more positive attitudes. (SM)
