Abstract

Nowadays, breaking with sexual diversity discrimination is a social requirement that is increasing. Thus, new theoretical frameworks have been appearing and being discussed but, scarcely, aren’t known by society. Consequently, the heteronormative concept still remains on social contexts, from schools to sport stadiums. In this way, this study is focused on the homophobia grade analysis in different federated sports in Catalonia by the adapted version of Actitudes hacia la Diversidad en el Deporte scale (Piedra, 2016). Moreover, other personal factors (sex, age, sexual orientation) have been considered for the comprehension of this heterosexual masculinity pressure in society, in order to develop future socio-educative proposals to change this scenario.
