Just 2.9 percent of Americans older than 18 identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual, according to a groundbreaking poll released Wednesday by New York's Hunter College. Gay-activist groups and the mainstream media often cite a 10 percent figure.
Caleb H. Price, research analyst for Focus on the Family, said the poll confirms the 10 percent figure is a myth.
“This poll roughly agrees with the University of Chicago’s landmark National Health and Social Life Survey," he said, "which found that only 1.4 percent of women think of themselves as lesbian or bisexual and only 2.8 percent of men identified themselves as gay or bisexual.”
The poll was funded through a grant from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, a gay-activist group. CitizenLink.com
