Nearly 80% of gays think it's important to integrate into the greater culture, and at least 64% are open about their sexual orientation to at least one family member, according to survey results released Tuesday by Logo TV network.

Nearly 80% of gays think it's important to integrate into the greater culture, and at least 64% are open about their sexual orientation to at least one family member, according to survey results released Tuesday by Logo TV network. A majority of survey takers also said they would prefer to live in suburbia as opposed to a city, though 58% said they would prefer to live closer to other gay people. Marriage equality, the environment, health care, and the economy are the top four issues that LGBT voters are concerned about.

Two thirds of younger gays expect to be in a long-term relationship with children, while fewer than one third of gays older than 35 expect the same.

"We're trading in West Hollywood for West Texas and big disposable incomes for disposable diapers," Lisa Sherman, Logo executive vice president, said in a press release. "Most important, we're integrating without abandoning our community or sense of identity. These developments are good for LGBT people and good for America."

The survey, in partnership with Tru Research, included people ages 21-45 in New York and Dallas as well as research by Simmons Market Research Bureau that included 1,800 LGBT people ages 21-59. (The Advocate)
