From a quantitative perspective, 228 young people from a private university in Cali-Colombia participated, the information was collected through a questionnaire. The statistical analysis of the results was carried out by the t-student and ANOVA tests. Results. The results show significant differences between the variables gender, faculty, income and self-concept in homophobia scores. Male, engineering, high family income, and negative self-concept participants showed a higher level of homophobia than the rest of the participants. Conclusions. It is concluded that the participants relate homosexuality with low family income, and that the positive self-concept favors the perception and attitude towards homosexual people.
