Gender Differences in African American Attitudes toward Gay Males.
Battle, Juan; Lemelle, Anthony J., Jr.
Western Journal of Black Studies, v26 n3 p134-39 Fall 2002
Used data from the 1993 National Black Politics Study to examine the way gender worked in explaining African American attitudes toward gay men. Results indicated that African American females expressed more positive attitudes toward homosexual men than did African American males, and of the variables examined (including age, church attendance, education, and household income), gender was the most powerful variable predicting positive attitudes toward homosexual men.
