The general attitude of Montenegrins towards LGBT population can be characterized as negative. A great number of those questioned who consider homosexuality, bisexuality and transgender a disease, often “incurable”, also oppose to supporting the rights of this population. Most citizens believe that LGBT shouldn‘t be allowed the right to marry and adopt children, but also, the right to publicly  gather or publicly express their sexuality. Furthermore, a large number of Montenegrins deny the fact that rights of this population are endangered. A public expression of sexual orientation seems to be a key point in understanding attitudes of Montenegrins towrads this phenomenon – members of LGBT would be acceptable to most people if they weren’t expressing their sexuality in public. Accordingly, they consider Pride Parade an attempt to provoke the rest of the population. Although attitudes towards LGBT population are negative in general, a great majority of Montenegrins do not consider that violence against this population on the basis of their sexual orientation is acceptable.

This negative attitude is particularly visible in the private sphere. Namely, one third of Montenegrins would reject a friend/acquaintance after finding out that they belonged to LGBT. Even if the majority wouldn’t do that – they would still not fully accept a sexual orientation other than theirs. More specifically, to accept would imply supporting a change, or “curing” that person. This attitude is particularly noted with regard to their own children, and it’s not in line with the general attitude that homosexuality can’t be altered, i.e. “cured”.

Traditionalist beliefs of society are often accompanied by negative attitude towards LGBT population. There is en encouraging fact that persons who know someone who is of homosexual orientation have more positive attitudes towards LGBT people. In addition, people with lower education and people who never use the Internet more often have negative opinion on LGBT population. Thus, it can be concluded that the negative attitude is to some extent also associated to the lack of knowledge and personal experience with this topic, and with the members of this population. In addition, there is the fact that even the level of awareness of which forms of sexuality are included in the term LGBT is at a very low level. Such situation could eventually open the door to public advocating with the aim of familiarizing the rest of the population with problems and life of LGBT members in Montenegro.
