Majority in Northern Ireland support same-sex marriages: survey

Attitudes towards same-sex relationships are softening in Northern Irelandwith over half of us now in favour of gay marriage.

The number of people who believe that gay and lesbian relations are “always wrong” has also dropped by more than half over the past two decades, according to a new survey. In 1989, 76% believed such relationships were wrong. By 2012 it was down to 28%.

But more than a third expressed disapproval of gay adoption and of lesbians having equal access to fertility treatment.

Researchers from Queen’s University Belfast interpreted the data from the 2012 Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey (NILT), which uses a random sample of 1,200 people living across Northern Ireland.
