Urban Students' Attitudes about Sexual Minorities across Intersections of Sex and Race/Ethnicity: Data from a Longitudinal Study
Gastic, Billie
Journal of LGBT Youth, v9 n1 p42-58 2012
This study examined the association between having a gay or lesbian friend and urban students' attitudes about sexual minorities. Results indicate that females were more likely than males to express supportive views about gays and lesbians. The contours of these sex differences were distinct by race/ethnicity. Black males and females differed more frequently in their views than did Whites or Latinos. Latino and Latina students expressed consistent views on sexual minorities with one exception: Latinas were nearly twice as likely as Latino males to say that they would remain close to a friend who came out as gay or lesbian.
