Abstract

Heterosexual students from a large state university reported more negative attitudes toward both gay male and lesbian peers than toward students whose sexual orientation was not disclosed in social, academic, and family situations. The implications of these findings for future research, programming, institutional support systems, and institutional policies as they affect gay male and lesbian students are discussed.
