The objective of the research was to identify possible influences on formation of positive and negative attitudes towards homosexuality. Based on a qualitative analysis of interviews the authors identified probable influences on a positive attitude formation: a) predominant positive experiences with a homosexual person, b) conviction that homosexual persons are same as the attitude holder, c) utilization of homosexual persons as the most important and most trustworthy sources of information about homosexuality, d) passivity or absence of a father's opinion influence and simultaneously a tolerance towards homosexuality from a mother's side in a family. For a negative attitude formation the authors introduce the following influences: a) conviction of abnormality of homosexuality, conviction of homosexuality being an illness or a deviation, or homosexuality as a phenomenon against the nature, b) unpleasant feelings from a visualization of a homosexual sexual intercourse or physical contact, c) conviction of unacceptability of children upbringing by homosexual couples, d) fears of molestation from homosexual men side in relation to predominante negative personal experiences with homosexuals (valid for heterosexual men only).
