In US, More Adults Identifying as LGBT
In 2016, 4.1% of American adults identified as LGBT, up from 3.5% in 2012. An estimated 10 million adults identify as LGBT in the U.S. Millennials and women largely drove the increases in LGBT identification.
By Gallup, Inc.

New analysis from Gallup shows:

Millennials are more than twice as likely as any other generation to identify as LGBT. In 2012, they accounted for 43% of LGBT-identified adults. As a result of their disproportionate increases in identification since then, they now account for 58%. Millennials comprise 32% of the general adult population.


Gallup research shows that data security and confidentiality are not major concerns of millennials. This could be one factor that explains why they are so much more likely to identify as LGBT when compared with other generations. They are more comfortable than their older counterparts with the idea of sharing what some might consider private information on surveys.”

More adults identifying as LGBT signifies: more adults are comfortable identifying themselves as LGBT, rather than hiding. As our world shifts in attitude, perception, and belief, we can see the tangible effects of the It Gets Better message being spread. Our community grows larger, louder, and prouder.
