Report: Shows Support For Gays

WASHINGTON – Today the Human Rights Campaign – the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization – released a special report analyzing public opinion on LGBT equality.  The data clearly shows Americans are supportive of fairness on a wide range of issues affecting the LGBT community.  View the full report HERE.

“While the American people embrace their LGBT friends and neighbors, government remains a lagging indicator of acceptance,” said HRC President Joe Solmonese.  “The numbers don’t lie.  Americans want equal rights for LGBT citizens and lawmakers should heed their call.”

Changing hearts and minds is the key to achieving equality for LGBT people.  From marriage and relationship recognition to employment nondiscrimination laws, Americans are quickly and consistently moving to embrace equality.

The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
