Homophobia is a negative attitude towards gays, lesbians, and bisexuals. It can be feelings of fear, hatred, or contempt, and is often linked to religious or cultural beliefs.People who are homophobic usually can’t explain why they feel this way, and believe that their attitude is ‘normal’. And like all irrational fear and prejudice, it can be hard to change.Homophobia expresses itself in many different ways. When children use the word ‘gay’ as an insult and bully other children who don’t fit into the normal gender stereotypes. Losing your job when your boss finds out that you’re gay. A look of horror on a friend’s face when you come out to them. Harassment in the street, and sometimes even physical attacks.
