new study from the Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Law and Public Policy at the UCLA School of Law finds the LGBTQ+ population in the U.S. is now the largest ever recorded and growing exponentially every few years. This new research — a 17-page study — estimates the percentage and number of LGBT adults at the national, state and regional levels, and it is revelatory. According to the new data, 13.9 million adults in the U.S. identify as LGBT, 5.5% of the country’s total population, which is an entire percentage point more than their last report. In 2020, the Williams Institute reported the LGBTQ population represented 4.5% of the population or 11.3 million adults. The new study signifies an increase of 2 million adults and other data in the study suggests the queer and trans populations will continue to grow at a steady pace in the coming years.
