LGBTQ+ Gallup Survey


The Washington Post reports that a Gallup survey released January 24 has found that more adult Americans are identifying as LGBTQ+, a shift that pollsters see as driven, at least in part, by people in younger generations who are more likely to consider themselves to be something other than heterosexual.


The poll found that 5.6 percent of adults identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, rising from 4.5 percent in 2017, the last time Gallup reported an annual update. The poll also found that more than half of LGBTQ+ adults identified as bisexual.
