Trump administration continues to attack the LGBTQ community

Last year the Accelerating Acceptance Index, a national survey among U.S. adults conducted on GLAAD's behalf by The Harris Poll, saw an erosion in LGBTQ acceptance ... a growing number of young people ages 18-34 report being less comfortable around LGBTQ people in certain personal situations.

The Trump administration continues to attack the LGBTQ community through discriminatory policies and targeted rhetoric, and LGBTQ Americans are becoming more vulnerable to hate crimes and violence. The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people declined from 63% in 2016 to 45% in 2018.

GLAAD’s 'Accelerating Acceptance Report' provides us with an urgent reminder that LGBTQ people and allies should continue to remain visible and vigilant on the fight for 100% acceptance of LGBTQ people.

1. Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people declined from 63 in 2016 to 45%

WTF? This is truly terrible. These were the kids who accepted people of every race, religion and sexual identification as equal. This is supposed to be the most liberal generation in history. I'm afraid for the LGBTQ community and seriously worried that this change could be a harbinger of the potential conservatization of millenials and Gen Z on other issues as well.
