This chapter documents the significant decrease in homophobia that has occurred at all three schools studied in this research. It shows that there is near-total acceptance of homosexuality as a legitimate sexual identity, and that many heterosexual students equate homophobia as being as bad as racism. With homophobic language absent from the schools, the chapter also demonstrates how gay students are socially included in these schools, with one school even having an openly gay student president. The low levels of homohysteria in these schools mean that heterosexual male students are able to be remarkably tactile with each other. The chapter concludes by highlighting the homophobia of these schools in the past, proving that attitudes have changed in the past ten years.
