Americans' acceptance of the gay population reaches record highs

New data from Gallup's annual Values and Beliefs survey gives us something else to celebrate following pride weekend. For the first time ever, Americans' acceptance of gay/lesbian relations just crossed the 50% threshold

The research goes onto reveal that regardless of religious persuasion or political affiliation, acceptance is increasing across the board. For more information and the methodology, click here
