ARK Seminars 2014/15
This seminar will report on 2012 NILT data relating to attitudes towards Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender issues. Given recent policy debates and legislative moves regarding 'gay marriage' and same-sex adoption it will focus specifically on attitudes towards lesbian and gay family and relationships. In so doing, it will consider public attitudes within the context of broader discourses that often underpin policy discussions on 'the family'.
