Millennials Support Full LGBT Rights—Just Not Right Now


A recent survey found support from young Americans on LGBT issues well into 90 percent—but only 6 percent consider it a top issue for the country.

The next generation of Americans fully support LGBTs right to employment, health care, and adoption--but it's not really a priority, a recent survey found.

The GenForward survey asked Americans between 18 and 30 years old how their support for LGBT issues has changed over the past two years.

In such a short time, young Americans have become overwhelming supporters of the community. The survey found 92 percent of respondent support HIV and AIDS prevention, 90 percent support LGBT employment equality, and 80 percent support LGBT adoption, according to The New York Times.

However, 6 percent said they did not believe LGBT rights was one of the top issues facing the country. Even among those in the survey who self-identified as LGBT, only 17 percent considered these issues to be national priorities.
