Acceptance of homosexual children
When it comes to the respondent’s reaction of the three cities concerning the question about how would they react if they knew that their children were homosexual, there were outstanding unbalanced opinions. However two categories stand out; on one hand, those that would assault the children physically with28% (Beira city), 25% (Maputo city) and 21% (Nampula city) on the other hand, there are those respondents who would accept their children with percentages ranging from 27% (Nampula city); 24 %( Maputo city) to 18% (Sofala city).
Interaction with homosexuals
Most respondents do not have contact with homosexuals. Questioned about what attitude they would have if they knew that a neighbor, a medical doctor or someone from their close relationships identifies himself or herself as homosexuals and or is an assumed homosexual; a trend for tolerance and passivity was verified.
In what concerns work relations, it was verified that 37.9% of respondents would respect the homosexual co-worker, 23.7%, would fire them if they could, 13.8% would avoid any contact and 20.6% would act with indifference.
