Growing American acceptance (63% of Americans in 2016, compared with 51% in 2006) could be one reason that more LGBT people are coming out – 10 million in 2016 or 4.1% of the population. Bisexuals are the largest segment of the community at 40%, followed by 36% gay men, 19% lesbians and 5% transgender. Just over a quarter of bisexuals are out to important people in their lives, compared to 77% of gay men and 71% of lesbians. Those aged 18 to 36 are most likely to identify as LGBT at 7.3%, whereas only 1.4% of those 71+ identify as LGBT. Whites are somewhat less likely to identify as LGBT than, in order, Hispanics, Blacks and Asians.
