What does the LGBTQ+ population look like in the U.S. today? Each year, Gallup conducts a survey of U.S. adults to determine the percentage of persons identifying within the LGBTQ+ community. In 2022, for the first time ever, the survey recoded the identities of persons who identify beyond the traditional lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender labels, with the most prevalent identities beyond those 4 being queer, pansexual and asexual.
