Gallup has polled on LGBT issues since 1977 -- and some of its findings have marked the largest shifts in U.S. public opinion Gallup has recorded. LGBT activist Cleve Jones joins the podcast to provide context to Gallup's earliest findings, and discusses how Americans' views have changed in the decades since.
Americans today have very different views about LGBT issues than they did in 1977, when Gallup first polled about gays and lesbians.
A slight majority of Americans (53%) say that new civil rights laws are needed to reduce discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
