Millennials, Gen Z growing more uncomfortable with LGBT movement: survey

A new survey shows that although widely considered to be the most accepting of generations, the LGBT movement is falling out of favor with millennials and younger Americans.

According to The Accelerating Acceptance report, conducted by The Harris Poll for the LGBT advocacy group GLAAD, survey respondents who were in the 18–34 age bracket reported that they were much less tolerant of LGBT men and women than they were in surveys taken the previous two years.
