Kentucky LGBT People See Support Growing Up

Written by 

A survey in Kentucky shows that more and more people support the LGBTQ community.

 

A coalition of Kentucky human rights groups conducted a survey which show that 83% of the population is in favor of protections for gays and lesbians in housing, public accomodations and employment.

 

A previous survey in 2004 revealed that 65% of the population were in favor of these protections.

"The survey results confirm what we hear in talking to our neighbors throughout the state — Kentuckians want to be fair, but many have no idea that employers can legally fire people for being gay or transgender or deny them housing or service in a restaurant," said Michael Aldridge, executive director of the American Union of civil liberties of Kentucky.

In November, Lexington, a city of Kentucky, elected its first openly gay mayor and more recently, a campaign was launched in order to increase the acceptance of LGBTQ people.
