Study: Majority of Blacks Believe Being Gay is a Choice

By | September 21, 2012

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)
