“Estimates” of homosexuality have ranged from 2 to 10 percent of the general population. 3.5 percent is a good estimate.
The woefully-uninformed American electorate, under an onslaught of propaganda from the Lying Liberal Media, believes 25 percent of the population is gay.
But now we have some data from a very unlikely sample: Members of the British Parliament!
The data we do have comes from Professor Andrew Reynolds, the director of the University of North Carolina’s LGBT Representation and Rights Research Initiative, and so far, he tells me, 29 of the United Kingdom’s 650 MPs are openly lesbian, gay, or bisexual—about 4.5 percent of the House. (Of these, 12 are Conservative, 13 Labour, and four represent the Scottish National Party.) That number includes those politicians who were already out and a few who have contacted Reynolds and asked to be added to the list. As Reynolds told me over email, “It’s not our job to out people—merely to report who they say they are.”
29 out of 650 MPs are openly LGBT! That’s 4.4 percent. If you could add the closet cases, the number might easily jump a few percentage points, far above estimates from the US population.
