Am I Gay? - 14 Signs That You Might Be a Lesbian
Bisexuals, who account for about four-in-ten LGBT adults in the United States, stand apart from gay and lesbian adults in many ways, such as the fact that they are less likely to view their sexual orientation as central to their identity. The experience of coming out to friends and family can be complex. Among those who did come out, bisexual adults report somewhat different experiences from gays and lesbians. Gays and lesbians are somewhat less likely to report being solely attracted to one gender. This is likely due at least in part to the fact that LGB adults make up a small share of the overall adult population, so the pool of potential same-sex partners is much smaller than the pool of opposite-sex partners. The survey also found that LGBT adults said that bisexual men faced less social acceptance than bisexual women, gay men and lesbians.
