Gay leaders are expressing alarm at the just-released numbers from the Center for Disease Control that place the percentage of Americans identifying as homosexual at only 1.6% of the adult population.Because America doesn't "look" like the New York Times newsroom.
That would mean the total number of gays in American is roughly 3.8 million, roughly 1.5 million less than the total number of American Methodists.
Scout, who goes by one name, a spokesman for CenterLink's Network of LGBT Health Equity, told the Washington Post, "The truth is, numbers matter, and political influence matters."
Most Americans believe the population of gays is exponentially larger. For almost half a century, Americans believed a number produced by disgraced sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, who claimed 10% of the population was gay. In recent years, Gallup found that a majority of adults believe the percentage of gays in the population is 25%. The same poll found younger people put the figure at 30%.
