New survey confirms that more people than ever around the world are identifying as LGBTQ

Gen Z is clearly the queerest generation yet.

A new survey undertaken by IPSOS has looked at sexuality across 30 countries - the results are pretty queer.

Across the 30 countries, an average of 8% of adults identified as somewhere within the LGBTQ umbrella. This is an increase on the numbers identified in previous surveys.

Unsurprisingly, those countires that demonstrated respect for LGBTQ equality reported higher numbers of adults identifying as LGBTQ.

Although LGBTQ people in Brazil face numerous challenges, Brazil was found to be the queerest country included in the survey, with 15% of adults identifying as LGBTQ.

The survey also found that people born after 1997 - referred to as Gen Z - are the queerest generation yet, with an average of 16% identifying as LGBTQ.
