BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The following are the results of the annual statewide poll, conducted by the Public Policy Research Lab at Louisiana State University. This year, Capital City Alliance, Louisiana Progress and Equality Louisiana commissioned three questions pertaining to the treatment of LGBT people in Louisiana to be included in the poll.

-89.3% of Louisiana residents agree that nobody should be fired from their job just because they are gay or transgender,

-93.7% of Louisiana residents believe that nobody should be evicted from their home or denied housing because they are gay or transgender, and

-89.5% of Louisiana residents believe that schools should protect gay and transgender students from bullying and harassment.

The support extends across all sorts of traditional dividing lines - Republicans and Democrats, young people and old, north Louisiana and south all agree that LGBT people deserve fair treatment in these aspects of life.
