Pew Research - "The Global Divide on Homosexuality Persists"

"Despite major changes in laws and norms surrounding the issue of same-sex marriage and the rights of LGBT people around the world, public opinion on the acceptance of homosexuality in society remains sharply divided by country, region and economic development." Jacob Poushiter and Nicholas Kent research the attitudes of homosexuality across the world over the last two decades. They found that those living in Western Europe and the Americas "are more accepting of homosexuality" compared to those living in "Eastern Europe, Russia, Ukraine, the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa." Factors that sway opinions and attitudes are political ideology, age, education, income, gender, countries wealth, and most importantly religious affiliation.
