According to a survey released last month, young people in America overwhelmingly support LGBT rights.

Pollsters at GenForward asked 1,940 adults under 30 about policies on employment, health care and adoption.

Ninety percent of respondents support equal employment rights for LGBT individuals. Support among young whites was even higher at 92 percent, a 12 percent increase since 2004. Ninety-two percent support HIV and AIDS prevention efforts, while 80 percent support LGBT adoption.

Young people also favor health insurance coverage for transgender health issues in general. Support was highest among Asian Americans (83%), followed by Latinos (74%). Support decreased when young people were provided examples of transgender health issues, with the lowest support at 57 percent among African Americans and Latinos.

“People who don't identify as heterosexual are human like we are, and should be entitled to the same kind of rights,” said Christie Cocklin, a 27-year-old from Providence, Rhode Island.

The poll was conducted by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
