This document presents the results from a qualitative study carried out to understand the social representations about homosexuality, same-sex marriage and homoparental adoption, made up by a group of 12 teenagers, aged 14 to 17, in Ibagué. Results from the study regard the social representations from the teenagers group, vary between a social exclusion standing towards homosexual people and their chances for adoption and marriage, and other prevailing perspective that acknowledges the rights for all human beings independent from their sexual orientation. In regards of the latter perspective, the teenagers highlight the need to re-start sexual education, to promote respect and tolerance towards people with non- hegemonic sexual orientation.
