Alternative sex Americans are 4.5% of population

Daily Mail _Nationwide, 4.5 percent of Americans identify as LGBTQ+ – but the population density of queer people varies dramatically from one state to the next, according to new survey data.

The national figure is higher than previous estimates, which put the U.S. LGBTQ+ population (which includes people who are gay, lesbian, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual) at roughly 10 million adults, or 4.1 percent of the population.

The findings are based on a survey conducted from 2012-2017 by Gallup Daily Tracking, which polled around 350,000 different people over the age of 18 each year. The data was compiled by The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law.
