REPORT: Survey reveals discomfort with LGBTQ Americans rising among the young

The percentage of young non-LGBTQ Americans who were either “very” or “somewhat” comfortable around LGBTQ people decreased for the second year in a row in 2018.

According to GLAAD’s annual Accelerating Acceptance Index, which was released Monday, 45 percent of non-LGBTQ Americans ages 18-34 said they were comfortable around LGBTQ people, or were “allies,” in 2018. This is a dip from the 53 percent of the age group who said they were allies in 2017 and the 63 percent who said they were allies in 2016.

The article goes on to state the following:

Although the percentage of allies is down among people ages 18-34, GLAAD reported the decrease between 2017 and 2018 was smaller than the decrease between 2016 and 2017.

The drop was based mostly on young women, USA Today reported. Sixty-four percent of non-LGBTQ women said they were allies in 2017, as opposed to 52 percent in 2018.
