WASHINGTON (TND) — The percentage of individuals who identify as LGBT is practically doubling from generation to generation, and new findings suggest 21st-century social trends are the cause.

Illustrating this, among other evidence, is data that LGBT identification has been running at twice the rate of LGBT sexual behavior, according to a report from the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology (CSPI).

According to the report, LGBT identification among Americans under 30 increased by approximately 11% between 2008 and 2021.

Simultaneously, individuals under 30 who reported a sexual partner of the same gender only increased by 4% since the 1990s.
