In this article, Erika Braanen Sterri explores attitudes about the acceptability of homosexuality among immigrant-origin adolescents in Norway. Despite substantial differences between native- and immigrant origin youth and between different groups according to regional origin and religious affiliation, there are clear indications of higher tolerance towards homosexuality across all groups. Immigrant-origin youth in Norway consider themselves more tolerant than their parents and are more tolerant compared to adolescents residing in their countries of origin. Family length of residence also correlates positively with the level of acceptance of homosexuality.
