Are gays increasing as a % of the population ? ( please read link )

    • Thread Starter

    ReputationRep: There are many statistics on the prevalence of homosexuality and bisexuality in western countries, they usually range from 2-5% but something people don't bring up a lot is the general increase in the % of people identifying as gay or bi and the much younger age structure of homosexuals compared to heterosexuals in pretty much all surveys that are carried out. So when people say 3% of the population are gay that doesn't necessarily mean 3% of babies born will be gay, there's also the fact that men are more likely than women to identify as gay too.
