Deadline nears to join in statewide LGBT survey

Georgians have just one more week to join in a first-ever online study of the state’s LGBT population and the issues they deem most important.

The survey is a project of the Phillip Rush Center, the Atlanta Lesbian Health Initiative and Georgia Equality. The two LGBT nonprofits are the founders of the center, which also provides office and meeting space to Atlanta Pride, MEGA Family Project, and several other groups.

The survey ends Sept. 9. It takes just 10 minutes and “will likely be the most important thing you can do this week to help secure a fair and just Georgia,” said Linda Ellis, executive director of ALHI.

Organizers say they will share the results with LGBT groups across the state to help with program planning and fundraising efforts.

Gallup poll confirms gay marriage momentum

Atlanta Pride Commitment Ceremony

Gallup released a new poll today that found a majority of Americans support legalizing same-sex unions. Gallup, which has regularly tracked the issue since the middle of last decade, found that 53 percent of Americans now support marriage equality.

In 2010, Gallup found that only 44 percent of Americans were in favor of such unions.

According to Gallup, only 27 percent of Americans supported legalizing same-sex marriage in 1996. Gallup's findings are in line with recent polls conducted by CNN/Opinion Research and CBS/Washington Post that also found a slim majority of Americans were supportive of same-sex marriage.
