New Poll Shows US is "Gaying Upward"

An estimated 5.6 percent of Americans identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer, according to a new Gallup report. That's up from 4.5 percent in 2017, the last year polling on the issue was conducted by the organization.

Of those surveyed who identified as LGBTQ, 54.6 percent identified as bisexual, 24.5 percent as gay, 11.7 percent as lesbians, 11.3 percent as transgender and 3.3 percent said they used another term to describe their identity (i.e. queer or same-gender loving). The total exceeds 100 percent because respondents were able to choose more than one category.

The results were based on more than 15,000 interviews conducted with adults 18. Younger Americans are increasingly likely to consider themselves part of the LGBTQ community: Nearly 16 percent of Generation Z, those 18 to 23 in 2020, consider themselves something other than heterosexual. That compares to just 2 percent of Americans 56 and older. (To see the full article, Click Here.)

About this Poll

Scientists have said that the brain peaks out sometime when we are in our 30s, and it is all downhill from there. This week we were wondering if you have noticed any memory loss, and if so, when did you notice it?

It might be hard to pinpoint the moment when you first noticed a significant lapse of memory. Choose the answer that best fits you.
