20% Of Millennials Identify As LGBTQ

From a Huffington Post article: "Harris Poll fielded online responses on behalf of GLAAD from more than 2,000 U.S. adults 18 years and older in November for the study, titled “Accelerating Acceptance 2017.” Results showed that millennial participants, or those between 18 and 34 years old, were much more likely to identify as LGBTQ than older generations surveyed."

This is very encouraging to me. Thank you Millennials!

Of interest is that over half of the US non-LGBTQ population polled consider themselves LGBTQ allies. 1 in 7 (14%) are "resistors." So it's people in the 14% that are driving the hate?

The above chart is a roll-up from these questions asked of non-LGBT respondents:


  1. Jen- Thanks, very interesting. I wonder if the percentage is same for women and men ~sara

    1. That is a great question! I'd bet women are more accepting. I'd like to see the data geographically too!
