Taylor Swift fans are more likely to oppose same sex marriage, study finds

Singer's 'Reputation' tour is due to hit the UK and Ireland next month

Taylor Swift fans are more likely to oppose same sex marriage, according to a new study.

The survey, conducted by TickPick, asked 1000 people in the US about subjects related to politics, music and issues in society.

Of those polled, 19.7 per cent of Swift fans were not on board with same sex marriage. Celine Dion’s followers were even more opposed with an even higher figure of 22.3 per cent, while as many as 25 per cent Garth Brooks fans opposed same sex marriage.


The survey also found fans of Lil Wayne, Lady Gaga, David Bowie and Tupac Shakur were far more open to same sex marriage.

Swift’s ‘Reputation’ stadium tour started in Arizona earlier this month.

On the opening night, the singer teamed up with Charlie XCX and Camila Cabello to perform ‘Shake It Off’.

The singer is due to hit the UK and Ireland as part of her ‘Reputation’ tour next month. See those dates in full below. Tickets are available here.
