Some interesting numbers have emerged from a new University Chicago study of millennials, revealing that a whopping one in five Latino millennials identifies as LGBTQ.


NBC News reports on the GenForward Survey: The organization’s recent report, “Millennial Attitudes on LGBT Issues: Race, Identity, and Experience,” found approximately 14 percent of all millennials — defined as those between the ages of 18 and 34 — identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. When you break it down by ethnicity, however, Latino millennials were much more likely than other ethnic

groups to self-identify as LGBTQ, or non-straight. The survey found 22 percent of Latino millennials identify as LGBTQ, compared to 14 percent of African-Americans, 13 percent of whites and 9 percent of Asian-Americans.
