LGBT identification in US doubles in a decade

Reading now: 645

More Americans than ever are identifying as LGBT, with a significant 7.1% of the population now saying that they are part of this community. According to Gallup, the figure is the highest to date and double the percentage since the polling company started measuring this in 2012.

The latest statistics are based on 2021 data generated from interviews with more than 12,000 adults. Gallup asks Americans whether they identify as straight or heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender as part of the demographic information it collects on all its US telephone surveys.

Those who volunteer other identities such as queer or pansexual are recorded as “other LGBT” but included in the overall LGBT statistic.
