Research on belief systems has shown to increase our understanding of intergroup attitudes and behaviour. This study explores the endorsement of a growing ideology, polyculturalism, on
Filipinos and its relationship to attitudes towards the LGBT community with implicit beliefs (malleability and fixedness of beliefs) on religiosity as a mediating variable in the relationship. In this study, results of college students and adults from the Philippines (n=209) indicated that the endorsement of polyculturalism was associated with generally positive attitudes toward the LGBT community and has shown implicit beliefs on religiosity, a mediating variable worth studying for.
