ABSTRACT

While there have been advancements in the pro-homosexuality attitudes and civil rights of homosexual individuals in recent times, the progress is mostly confined to the Western nations. Homosexuality is largely considered a taboo in India with negative attitudes prevailing in the general public. The present research aimed at examining the impact of audio-visual intervention on students’ attitude towards homosexuality. The sample included 108 undergraduate students (M-54, F-54) in the age range 18-21 years studying in Delhi. The participants completed the Homosexuality Attitude Scale (Kite & Deaux, 1986) prior to and after viewing two intervention videos shown on consecutive days. Comparisons between the pre-intervention and the post-intervention scores of males, females and the total sample were done using t-test. The results indicated significant positive attitude change in the total sample and the male subjects. The attitude of female subjects towards homosexuality also became more favourable; however, the change was not significant in nature.
