The aim of this research was to investigate attitudes toward transsexualism in the general sample of participants in Croatia. The convenience sample was collected via Internet and it comprised 807 participants: 577 females and 230 males. As the measuring instrument we used Attitudes Toward Transsexualism National Survey (Landen i Innala, 2000). The main finding was positive and tolerant attitudes toward transsexuals among the sample of participants in Croatia. More restrictive views were found in the question regarding coverage of the costs of sex reassignment surgery, where 49% of participants thought that the individual should bear the expenses for it (and not the public funds), as well as in the question “Would it be possible for you to have an openly transsexual person as a partner?“, where 54% of the participants responded negatively. More positive attitude toward transsexualism was found in women as opposed to men, in participants who had prior contact to transsexuals as opposed to those who had not, and participants who believed that transsexualism is caused by biological factors as opposed to those who held a psychological view. Participants who practice their religion held more restrictive views toward transsexuality than other participants (those who do not practice their religion, who are undecided on the issue of religion and atheists). Participants of different age groups showed no significant differences regarding attitudes toward transsexualism.
