There are various positions on LGB issues including same-sex marriage and adoption by same-sex parents. Some stances are positive, while others remain negative. The purpose of this study is to describe attitudes of both SDA and non-SDA students on LGB issues. Two hundred and ninety-five university students from a private and a public university in Southeast Tennessee participated in this study. They completed the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Attitudes Inventory (LGBAI), which contains 103 items that measure variables such as religiosity, homonegativity, and attitudes toward same-sex marriage and adoption by same-sex parents. Results show that SDA students held higher homonegativity toward same-sex marriage and adoption by same-sex parents than non-SDA students. Specifically, Caucasian male students with conservative views consistently showed more negative attitudes toward LGB issues. There was a positive correlation between attitudes toward same-sex marriage and adoption by same-sex parents indicating that 65% of negative attitudes toward same-sex marriage can explain negative
