Excerpts from a 2000 research article titled “Changing Social Attitudes in the United States: Increasing Acceptance of Homosexuals.”

This article notes how, in spite of the gay liberation movement and the “new gay culture” that emerged after Stonewall, homophobia “stands as the last acceptable prejudice.” The study that the article describes surveyed “anti-gay” attitudes in the US population to determine if “the majority of Americans still possess anti-homosexual attitudes.” The article is dense and complex. Focus on the introductory and discussion sections to help you explore the study’s findings and what those findings mean.
