6 charts that reveal global attitudes to LGBT+ and gender identities in 2021
Globally, 1% of adults currently describe themselves as transgender, non-binary, non-conforming, gender-fluid or “in another way”, rather than as male or female, according to a new survey.
More than 19,000 people, aged 16 to 74, were canvassed in 27 different countries between 23 April and 7 May for the Ipsos LGBT+ Pride 2021 Global Survey.
Of those adults surveyed, an average of 80% identified as heterosexual while 3% identified as gay, lesbian or homosexual. Four percent responded to say they were bisexual, 1% as pansexual or omnisexual, 1% as asexual, 1% as “other”, while 11% either don’t know or didn’t say.
