Homophobic Australia?

So a quarter of Australians would object if a gay couple moved in next door.


Seems to be in line with many European countries (Austria (26.7%), Greece (26.8%), the Republic of Ireland (27.5%) Italy (28.7%) and Portugal (25.6%).

Hats off to liberal Sweden, where only 6% of respondents said they would object.

However better news on the immigrant question.

Just 4.6% of Aussies said they would not like people of a different race as neighbours compared to 15.6% of Italians, and a shocking 19% of people from Northern Ireland.
