Even More Americans Now Identify As LBGT

When Gallup first measured the percentage of alphabet people in the United States a decade ago, 3.5 percent claimed a letter.

Now 7.2 percent of Americans report LGBT membership.

Within the LGBT cluster, one letter gains more adherents than any other: B. They appear to enjoy more choices and suffer less stigma due to their ability to conscript beards.

Nearly three in five LGBTs identify as bisexual (perhaps someday science discovers the bisexual gene). Gs represent one in five, Ls 13 percent, and Ts about 9 percent of all LGBTs.

Generationally, LGBTs appear in dramatically higher numbers among Zoomers (19.7 percent) and Millennials (11.2 percent) than Gen X (3.3. percent), Baby Boomers (2.7 percent), and the Silent Generation (1.7 percent), which suggests either a wave of butches, twinks, bears, and drag queens migrated to the United States in recent years or a massive public-relations campaign promoting so-called alternative lifestyles to the young occurred during that same period.
