The purpose of this study was to investigate university students' attitudes toward interpersonal relationships with gay and lesbian peers and to compare attitudinal differences between male and female students. The sample consisted of 494 (197 male and 297 female) university students. Two research instruments were used: "University Student Attitudes Toward Interpersonal Relationships with Gay Peers" and "University Student Attitudes Toward Interpersonal Relationships with Lesbian Peers." Each instrument measures three dimensions: "Friendship Acceptance, "Attitudes Toward Gay/Lesbian Love," and "Sympathy." Male students reported more negative attitudes toward gay peers than lesbian peers in Friendship dimension. Female students indicated no different attitudes toward gay peers and lesbian peers in Friendship. Male students reported more negative attitudes towards gay peers and lesbian peers in Love and Sympathy dimensions than female students. Both male and female students indicated more negative attitudes toward gay peers than lesbian peers in Love and Sympathy dimensions. Implications of these findings for future research, programming, institutional support systems, and institutional policies as they affect gay and lesbian students are discussed.
