Research has suggested over 1 in 5 Scots (21%) would not describe themselves as open-minded and accepting of LGBT lives. In a survey of 1,005 Scottish people between 3rd and 10th May 2019, it was also found that almost 1 in 10 (8%) would think other people might describe them as homophobic. The data was released as part of a study into the attitudes and opinions of Scots in 2019 by Censuswide Scotland. When asked “Do you think of yourself as open-minded and accepting of LGBT people?” nearly 18% of women and 25% of men said they do not. Those over 55yo were also the most likely age group (34%) not to be open-minded or accepting, while young people aged 16 to 24 (11%) were the most open-minded to LGBT lives.
