Summary of Past Research on Attitudes Toward Homosexuals The literature on attitudes toward homosexuality is extensive, yet relatively little attention has been paid to behavioral reactions to known gay persons. The available findings outline a general pattern wherein gay men and lesbians are consistently treated differently, and typically more harshly, than their heterosexual counterparts. Finally, homosexuals who have contracted the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from an uncontrollable source are evaluated more harshly than are infected heterosexuals (Anderson, 1992;Kite, Whitley, Simon, & Michael, 1991),and undergraduates report less willingness to interact with a homosexual person with AIDS (PWA) than a heterosexual PWA (Fish & Rye, 1991; Stevenson, 1991).
