The article discusses a survey of more than 2,000 adult by gay rights campaigner Stonewall which found that 93 per cent of people were comfortable with having a gay boss. It was found that there had been an improvement in attitudes towards gay workers, but the need to take responsibility for addressing minority prejudices is also cited. A statement was issued by Stonewall policy officer Katherine Cowan applauding the shift in attitudes towards gays in the workplace.
