50 years after decriminalisation, over 40% of Brits believe gay sex is unnatural

A YouGov poll of 1,609 adults for PinkNews found that – of those who have an opinion – 42 per cent believe that gay sex is not natural.

An even higher number, 48 per cent, believe that primary school children (those aged 5 to 11) should not be taught about gay relationships in school.

Meanwhile, 36 per cent of Britons generally disapprove of gay men becoming parents, via surrogacy, adoption, or other methods.
