I found this questionnaire on a PBS website and thought I'd share it with you. I also added some photographs that might make you think how comfortable you really are with gay people (if you are straight) or with straights ( if you are gay).

Since the early 1980's, scientistsattempting to measure homophobia havedeveloped a number of different homophobiascales and questionnaires.In 1996, as part of his study on homophobia, Dr.Henry Adams and his colleagues at theUniversity of Georgia developed their own"Homophobia Scale" by modifying scales used by other researchers in earlier studies. It's a 25-item questionnaire "designed to measure your thoughts, feelings and behaviors with regards tohomosexuality."
