Race and Attitudes Toward Same-Sex Marriage Among Young Adults


kappaIn a study done by the Black Youth Project, it shows that the attitudes toward same-sex marriage vary by race amongst youth.

Analysis shows Latino youth support same-sex marriage at much higher rates than Black youth, though support for same-sex marriage has grown across all racial groups.

Contrary to the conventional narrative reported in the media, young people’s attitudes toward same-sex marriage vary widely across racial groups. The latest report in the Black Youth Project’s series, “Black and Latino Youth and the Future of American ”, examines acceptance of same-sex marriage in 2009 and 2012. In both years, Black youth were much less supportive of same-sex marriage compared with their white and Latino , and Latino youth express the highest levels of support.

Support for same-sex marriage grew among each racial group between 2009 and , yet racial differences in attitudes toward same-sex marriage persist. While young people are more supportive of same-sex marriage than older , differences by age are much smaller among Blacks than they are for both whites and Latinos. Since 2009, the gender gap in support of same-sex marriage has decreased among white and Latino youth, but increased slightly among Black youth, with young Black women somewhat more supportive of same- marriage than young Black men.
