According to a recent study by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, 65% of college freshman support same-sex marriage, while only 59% of Americans 18-29 and 39% of the nation as a whole agree!
Evan Wolfson, director of advocacy group for same-sex marriage Freedom to Marry, says:
"Young people who know gay people, talk with them, and examine why marriage matters in the lives of real people move in support."
Hopefully some college freshmen in that 65% can grow up and take on roles which will help everyone in this country get equal rights!
You said it best, Vanessa Williams: the children ARE our future!!
