We explored levels of prejudice, apprehension of contact, intergroup anxiety, and empathy towards gay men in a sample of 93 male students. In general, students show slightly high negative attitudes towards gay men; regarding empathy levels, they also show a negative pattern. Cross-group friendship decreases only prejudice levels and intergroup anxiety towards gay men, but it did not impact apprehension of contact and empathy. Furthermore results show positive correlations between intergroup anxiety and both negative attitudes towards gay men and empathy, and negative correlations between empathy and attitudes towards gay men.
