Abstract ―​

The battle for equality by the LGBTQIA+ community has been going on for a while, but it has gotten better as more people have come to believe that LGBTQIA+ individuals should be treated with the same respect and rights as everyone else. The social struggle towards the acceptance and attitudes of LGBTQIA+ community in the Philippines is still on topic since then until now. The study was conducted in Antipolo city with 424 respondents. This study looks into heterosexual persons' impressions about the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as how they relate to their demographic profiles and the elements that may impact their views. This study took a correlational method, using questionnaires to investigate the relationship between the variables. The study revealed that the respondents' sex, age and educational attainment are significantly and moderately correlated, and likewise a significant determinant for both their acceptance and attitude towards the LGBTQIA+ community.
