While black and Latino media outlets are overwhelmingly supportive of gay issues in their coverage, more blacks believe that homosexuality is a choice than the country at large, according to a new report by the Opportunity Agenda.
The group analyzed available public opinion research to get a overall view of how the country’s opinions of the LGBT community and its issues have been evolving over time, particularly in the black and Latino community.
The report, called “Public Opinion and Discourse on the Intersection of LGBT Issues and Race,” shows that there remains a tension in the black and Latino communities between support for LGBT equality and a belief that it violates moral and religious principles. (Atlanta Black Star)
