African Americans More Likely to Identify as LGBT than White Americans

The largest-ever demographic study of America’s LGBT population was released last week, and the data revealed that African Americans and other ethnic minorities are more likely to identify as LGBT than white Americans. Kaila Story and Jaison Gardner, co-hosts of WFPL’s weekly podcast Strange Fruit, spoke with one of the study’s co-authors, Gary Gates. Here’s an excerpt of that conversation; to hear the whole thing, download the latest edition of Strange Fruit from WFPL.org this Saturday morning.
