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.
