According to their census bureau, just 1%

We know that's got to be wrong.

When the plaintiffs filed briefs in Lawrence v. Texas, they admitted that the 10% number so often quoted is totally bogus. The actual percent in the U.S. is probably less than 3% and even that uses a very liberal classification of what is a homosexual is.

It's just about impossible to get an accurate count since probably the majority are loathe to admit it to themselves, let alone anyone else.

Well, what is the "real" definition? I'm sure you must know how to define a real homosexual given all your experience in this matter.

But what difference does it make if there are 1 million 'mos or 1000 'mos?

Sorry, I guess it does. Toronto is nowhere nearly as drop-dead fabu-frickin-lous as New York !

Interesting topic and I was bored, so I did some research.

How gay is Canada?
Apparently not as gay as our US neighbors, perhaps...

According to http://www.gaydemographics.org, Canada has 0.48% same-sex couples and the USA has 0.99% same-sex couples. Apparently DC is highest at 5.14% and North Dakota is lowest, at 0.47%

Granted, these are statistics of same sex couples, not a percentage of people who admit to being gay. However, it would have at least some value at getting a sense of the percentage of homosexual population. I'm not overly familiar with gay culture, but I wouldn't see any reason why homosexuals in either country would be significantly more willing or reluctant to admitting that they are in a same-sex relationship.

Incidentally, in case anyone is wondering why I provided percentages for Canada and the USA, it's because they are the only two countries that had percentages listed on that site.

Based on RT514's post, who can now doubt that life inside the beltway is different than that outside? 5.14% means that more than 1 in every 20 couples in DC are same sex. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

That's an even weaker and more intangible "method" of measure than percentages...

...particularly if you'll consider the enormous frequency with which gay males enter/exist "relationships"

You guys sure know (and care) a lot about gay people. Maybe you could teach me a thing or two.

I think the number of gays is much higher than most people think. Straight guys and some straight girls just don't know how to tell who's gay and who's not. (Unless someone's an obvious flaming queen or a butch diesel-dyke, of course.) When I was younger I felt like there were so few gays in the world. But now that I've been out for a while I see them everywhere. Sometimes its a little hard to tell though, because straight guys are emulating us so much.

It's very interesting for me to read responses on here, because I've lived in NYC for 6 years and I forget how common Americans feel about gay people. Having said that, I'm so glad I got hired as a flight attendant and was able to escape life in Fort Worth, Texas. The world I live in now is so different. Everyone I meet (gay, straight, bi, whatever) is so cool!! Now I only stick to the big cities (New York, Miami, Los Angeles, DC, etc) where I can be amongst open-minded people.

You gotta know where to go to find the open minded people. Being originally from New York, I can tell you that there are plenty of people there who are not open minded. Now I live in Dallas/Fort Worth and know that there are plenty of open minded people here too...you just have to know where to be!

And speaking of Canadians...my experience in Toronto and Vancouver have been that there are gays everywhere! Or maybe its that they know how to dress...I can't tell...my 'dar is always off when I'm in Canada. I am a fan of those Canadians, though!



That's why we're here.

Don't be presumptuous, ConcordeBoy. I did not attempt to measure anything and neither promoted nor discounted any "method" of anything. I merely pointed out some statistics that I came across. I also pointed out in my post that I am not overly familiar with homosexual culture and therefore I did not intend to interpret anything from my findings. Interesting nonetheless, considering the significant difference (greater than twice as many, 0.48% vs. 0.99%) between 2 countries that share so many similarities.

Interesting that this thread stirs up emotion within you, CXA330300. N6376m is right. If you don't like the thread, don't read it.
