Two scales, i.e., ATLG Scale (Attitude Towards Lesbian and Gay Men Scale) and SEKHQ Scale (The Sex Education and Knowledge about Homosexuality Questionnaire), were provided to participants and data was collected. Results– The study highlights no significant difference between the domains of attitude and knowledge towards homosexuality. Independent T test was used to statistically understand whether the difference between male and females in the domain of attitude and knowledge is significant or not. The value obtained was p>0.05, hence showing no significant difference. Also, Correlation pearson-r was used to find if there is a correlation between attitude and knowledge towards homosexuality, and the correlation was significant at the 0.01 level, hence showing a positive correlation between attitude and knowledge towards homosexuality.
