Stonewall congratulates Kate and William

Four in five Britons comfortable if new heir grows up to be gay

Stonewall has offered congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the arrival of their new baby.

YouGov polling for Stonewall (of 2,074 adults) has found that 83 per cent of people in Britain would be ‘very comfortable’, ‘comfortable’, or ‘neutral’ if the first child – and heir to the throne – of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge grows up to be lesbian, gay or bisexual.

Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill said: ‘Millions of people will be celebrating today’s news, just as millions last week celebrated the news of equal marriage in England and Wales. Happily, since last week every child born in Britain is born into a society where gay people are now equal in law.’
