GLAAD Ceo and President Sarah Kate Ellis released a statement to NewNowNext:
"2015 was a monumental year for the LGBT community, but marriage equality is a benchmark--not a finish line. The hard work of legislative change must go hand in hand with that which cannot be decided in a courtroom: changing hearts and minds. In order to enact meaningful change, we first need to understand how Americans really feel about LGBT people and issues. This report gives us tremendous insight into present-day sentiments, and helps us hone GLAAD's culture-changing programs to tackle complacency and drive acceptance forward."
