"National public opinion toward same-sex marriage has shifted dramatically over the last decade. Much of the reporting on this shift has focused on the overwhelming support for LGBT rights among young people, often called the millennial generation. Interestingly, rarely is the racial breakdown among young people reported. Do different groups of young people feel differently about LGBT issues and the agenda of the LGBT movement?
In this report, we study the attitudes of young people, particularly young people of color, about marriage equality and LGBT rights more broadly using a nationally representative survey of 1,500 individuals between the ages of 18 and 30 conducted during June 2014."
