The LGBTQ+ community is a historically marginalized and misunderstood group and there is no current data that represents an accurate overall picture of the American population that identify as such. We also recognize these identities are complex, fluid and can evolve for someone over time. Currently there are no metrics that capture the holistic prevalence of individuals that identify with the LGBTQ+ community at Stonehill. However, a recent national poll provided data that 3.8% of the public identifies as in the LGBTQ+ community (Newport, 2015), but only 58,000 people of our approximately 324,612,000 U.S. population (Census Bureau, 2017) were surveyed.
