Most homosexuals indifferent to UK gay marriage

Mail Online 8 June 2012
Homosexuals are indifferent to David Cameron’s campaign for gay marriage, with fewer than four in ten believing that it is a priority for their community. And there is deep scepticism about the Prime Minister’s motives in trying to extend marriage to same-sex couples, with half believing he is doing it only to ‘make his party look more compassionate rather than because of his convictions’. The overwhelming apathy about gay marriage was revealed in the first online poll of gay, lesbian and bisexual people on the issue. Just over a quarter – 27 per cent – said they would get married if the law permitted it, just one percentage point more than the number who said they would take up civil partnerships, which were introduced by the Labour government. The findings, from an online ComRes poll of 541 adults who describe themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, are a blow for the Prime Minister, who is championing gay marriage.
