“Probably 15 years. I think we’ve made improvements toward it. But there’s still a lot of opposition. Even though there’s a lot of public awareness about the issue, that’s also brought about much opposition.”

Timothy Rissel
restaurant manager | Queen Village
“My guess would be 10 years. A lot of older people probably would be opposed to it. The rural areas are highly Republican and more conservative. It will take 10 years for their attitudes to come around.”

“The year 2015. I see a shift in attitudes that are affecting even Pennsylvania. Since so many young people support gay marriage, we’re swaying the older people to see things our way, too.”
