Book Launch: Cross-National Public Opinion about Homosexuality

Please join us for a book launch and reception for Cross-National Public Opinion about Homosexuality: Examining Attitudes Across the Globe by LGBT Social Science & Public Policy Center's Board Member, Dr. Amy Adamczyk. Public opinion about homosexuality varies substantially around the world. While residents in some nations have embraced gay rights as human rights, people in many other countries find homosexuality unacceptable. What creates such big differences in attitudes? This book shows that cross-national differences in opinion can be explained by the strength of democratic institutions, the level of economic development, and the religious context of the places where people live. Amy Adamczyk uses survey data from almost ninety societies, case studies of various countries, content analysis of newspaper articles, and in-depth interviews to examine how demographic and individual characteristics influence acceptance of homosexuality. Thoughts on policy and advocate application of this research will be offered by Lisa Davis, CUNY Law, and Jessica Stern, Outright International.

Date: Tuesday, April 4
Time: 5:00 - 7:00 pm
Place: Hunter College Casa Lally, 132 E 65th Street, Floor Three

Refreshments will be served. RSVP is required.
