A new study by The Williams Institute of the UCLA School of Law asks, “ How many people are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender?,” and shows that almost nine million American adults  – close to 4% of the American adult population — identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender, and breaks down those numbers. The study, released today, examined five American and an additional four international population surveys and found, “women are substantially more likely than men to identify as bisexual,” and that 11% of the population, more than 25 million Americans, acknowledge some same-gender sexual attraction.
