dc.description.abstractThis study aimed to investigate potential relationships between religiosity, personal social contact, education and gender on societal attitudes towards homosexuality. There were 295 participants (males = 56, females = 239) and a battery of measures was used. Analysis of the data found there was a significant negative correlation between religiosity and attitudes towards homosexual males (R = .226, p < 0.01) and gay females (R = .228, p < 0.01). The study found significant positive correlations between personal social contact and attitudes toward gay males (r = -.366, p < 0.01) and gay females (r = -.322, p < 0.01). The study found there was a significant positive correlation between agreeableness and attitudes towards homosexual males (r = -.149, p > 0.05) and gay females (r = -.162, p > 0.05). Gender differences were found with female participants scoring lower in homonegativity in relation to both gay men and women.
