Changing Gender and Sexual Demographics

Changing Gender and Sexual Demographics

The Pacific Standard has examined the latest research to show that the Unites States has seen a change over the last five years in the demographics of those who identify as being in the LBGT community. During this period, the group has grown from 3.5% to 4.1% of the population, or from 8.3 million to over 10 million people. There is no simple explanation for this change, but most of the change comes from Millennials who now identify themselves as being LBGT.
