New Gallup Poll Shows PDX Ranks 2nd Highest in LGBT Percentage

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

 

Gay Pride

A just-released Gallup poll ranks San Francisco metropolitan area has the highest percentage of the adult population who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) of any of the top 50 U.S. metropolitan areas. San Francisco is followed by Portland, Oregon, and Austin, Texas.

The percentages were based on responses to the following question:  "Do you, personally, identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender?" San Francisco, a long time mecca for the gay community, came in at 6.2 percent. Portland followed closely behind at 5.4 percent. 

The report states, "similar to San Francisco, Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) like Portland, Seattle and Los Angeles in the West...are known for their progressive social and political climates and active LGBT communities." 

The question was included in more than 374,000 Gallup daily tracking interviews conducted between June 2012 and December 2014. According to Gallup, this is the largest ongoing study of the distribution of the LGBT population in the U.S. on record, and the first time a study has had large enough sample sizes to provide estimates of the LGBT population by MSA.
