Giuliano & Rashad Robinson, Senior Director of Media Programs, discuss the results of a new poll that the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation commissioned Harris Interactive to conduct.

The results are very encouraging....:)

The Pulse of Equality survey shows that majorities of Americans favor either marriage or civil unions/domestic partnerships for gay & lesbian couples. The poll also shows support for gay & transgender inclusive hate-crimes laws, non-discrimination laws & allowing openly gay service members to serve in the armed forces. Also, a majority opposes laws that would ban adoption by qualified gay & lesbian couples. For more info: GLAAD/HARRIS POLL
