That's up 11 percent from 2010. Though, we're wondering about how 40 percent of you, in the age of Facebook, Twitter, and whatnot still don't have a close friend or family member who's gay.
Those statistics are from a CNN/ORC International Poll released today which asked a bunch of questions about gay rights. Gay pride month and President Obama's coming out in support of same-sex marriage have put these issues front and center.
The poll found that 54 percent of Americans asked believe that same-sex marriage should be recognized, which isn't too surprising considering that number has been on an upswing--one of the biggest explanations in that rise being that once someone is friends or related to gay person, they're probably less likely to deny them their rights.
