Survey reveals top priorities for LGBT community


A new survey has revealed that, out of all the issues facing the LGBT community, LGBTs appear most concerned with workplace rights and employment protections. Pew Research Center released results of its comprehensive national survey on the attitudes and experiences of the LGBT community in America today, sampling 1,197 people from across the United States who self-identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual and/or as transgender (LGBT).

Few would argue that we can, or should, simply parse what issues are more important than others because when it comes to civil rights like these, they all matter and form a complex web. For instance a Defense of Marriage Act repeal isn’t just about gay marriage, but also encompasses immigration reform, health care benefits and more.
