Results showed that while a majority of the sample perceived the gay community as ageist and looksist, there was tremendous within-group variability in ageist and looksist attitudes. Ageist and looksist attitudes varied by participation in specific gay community contexts such that participation in bar/nightclub contexts was associated with higher ageist and looksist attitudes and participation in community service/volunteer contexts was associated with lower ageist and looksist attitudes. Significant relationships with ageist and looksist attitude variables manifested differently by age group with older men showing more implicit attitude relationships and younger men showing both explicit and implicit attitude relationships. While mediation was not fully supported, an important overall finding was the significant relationship between ageist and looksist attitudes among the total sample of gay men.
