Growing Support for Gay People in Mexico

A growing majority of Mexicans are in favor of LGBT people and their rights.

According to the last Parametria poll, 52% of respondents support gay marriage, while 44% remain opposed. That's a 13 point increase in support from a previous survey conducted in December of 2012.

About the openly gay politicians, they are supported by 49%.

And 57% of Mexicans support gay troops serving openly in the military.

In addition, 89% of respondents said that gay people in Mexico should be treated equally.

However, 70% of Mexicans are opposed to gay couples adopting children, although it's a 4 point drop from last year's survey.

In any case, Mexican's favorable opinion on LGBT people and their rights is increasing, and that's good news.
