Their research found that younger Americans (“under 30s” as they call them) are noticeably less likely than their “elders’ to adhere to labels. 29% of under-30s identify themselves as “somewhere on the category of bisexuality.”

Overall, 78% of Americans identify as completely heterosexual while 4% say that they are completely homosexual. 16% of American adults say that they fall somewhere in the middle. This is in high contrast to a May report from Gallup which purported “23% of Americans are gay or lesbian.”

24% of people aged 30 to 44 say that they’re somewhere on the scale of bisexuality, while only 8% or less of over-45s say the same.
