Study Shows Increase in TN Same-Sex Couples 

The Williams Institute, based out of the UCLA law school, recently released the results of its study of gay, lesbian, and bisexual demographics between 2000 and 2005. One result: a 30 percent increase in the number of same-sex couples across the country. Researchers don’t see this as a huge jump in the GLB population, thinking, instead, that the increase may be due to same-sex couples feeling more comfortable about revealing their sexuality than ever before.

In Tennessee, the increase in same-sex couples is reportedly 33 percent, which may make a difference come November 7th, when Tennesseans will be voting on an amendment to ban same-sex marriage.
