Study: People of Color More Likely to ID as Gay

Study Shows Men Of Color More Prone To Identify As Gay

Last Thursday, “the largest single study of the distribution of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) population in the U.S. on record” was published by the Williams Institute at the law school of the University of California, Los Angeles. In the poll, 121,290 Americans were asked if they self-identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.

The results show that 3.4% of U.S. adults identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. “ … the highest incidence among those who are non-white, younger, and less educated. The findings are based on the largest representative sample of LGBTQ men and women ever collected.”

Black Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities are more likely than White Americans to identify as LGBTQ. The results show that 4.6% of African-Americans identify as LGBTQ along with 4.0% of Hispanics and 4.3% of Asians. Among White Americans, the figure was 3.2%.
