A new study has revealed that more than a quarter of UK adults would be ashamed to have an LGBT+ child and that less than half would feel proud.
The study, an online poll, was conducted by YouGov on behalf of queer youth homelessness charity akt. It found that 26 per cent of the 2,109 people surveyed would feel ashamed to have an LGBT+ child, while one in 10 would not want their child to bring home a same-sex partner.
One in five would worry about how family members would respond to them having an LGBT+ child, and around 11% of people would be uncomfortable living at home with a queer youngster.
Only 59 per cent of adults believed that education should include LGBT+ issues, with nearly 30% admitting to feeling uninformed with regard to what LGBT+ actually means.
Just short of a third of people said that they would be unwilling to change the pronouns used for their child if the youngster came out as trans.
