The LBTQ community is one that is rapidly growing and fighting more and more for equality in today’s society. Vote your sexual orientation in this poll and look at the results! If you do not identify with any of these categories, then click “other.”
Did you know that the Kinsey scale was developed in 1948 by Alfred Kinsey to rate and describe a persons sexual orientation. The scale goes from 0, heterosexual, to 6, homosexual. Anything in between, would be for people with various attractions to the opposite/same sex.
Sexual Orientation Statistics:
Among U.S. adults aged 18 and over, 97.7% identified as straight, 1.6% as gay or lesbian, and 0.7% as bisexual. These distributions differed by both sex and age. A higher percentage of women identified as bisexual, a finding consistent with other documented estimates of sexual orientation (14).
In a Williams Institute review based on an June–September 2012 Gallup poll, approximately 3.4 percent of American adults identify themselves as being LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender), though that number has increased to 4.1% in 2016.
