Dr. Prerana Gupta* and Dr. Swati Singh

ABSTRACT

Background: Homosexuality is "an enduring pattern of emotional, romantic, and/or sexual attractions" to people of the same sex. Homophobia is prevalent in India. Public discussion of homosexuality in India has been inhibited by the fact that sexuality in any form is rarely discussed openly. In recent years, however, attitudes towards homosexuality have shifted slightly. Aim: This study aimed to evaluate Indian medical students (undergraduate, postgraduate medical students) attitude towards homosexuals. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted on a sample of undergraduate medical students and postgraduate medical students studying in an Indian private medical college. The participants filled the Attitudes towards Homosexuals Questionnaire (AHQ). AHQ consisted of 20 statements scorable on a 5-point Likert scale. Results: Among Undergraduate and postgraduate Medical student, Females had more positive attitudes towards homosexuals. Conclusion: Enhancing knowledge of medical students by incorporation of homosexuality related health issues in the curriculum could help reduce prejudice towards the sexual minority and thus impact their future clinical practice.

Keywords: Attitude, homosexuality, India, Under graduate & Post graduate medical students.
