The gay hookup app Jack'd did a survey of it's U.S. users ahead of today's second anniversary of President Obama's endorsement of marriage equality to get their thoughts on “marriage, relationships and the president himself.”

According to Jack'd, 55% of gay men see marriage equality as a reality in all 50 states within 10 years. Just 11% said it would never be legal in all 50 states, yet 86% say they currently live in a state with marriage equality or where they think marriage equality is on the horizon.

One couple who say they met on Jack'd said of the president:

“We are excited to live in a country where our president is supportive of same-sex marriage. We met through Jack’d two years ago, started our business PoseCookMove together, and are planning on getting married one day. As young, gay black men it means a lot to us that we have our President’s support.”

Further findings: Gay men are very concerned about health (inclusive of HIV), employment discrimination, domestic and anti-gay violence and immigration.
