In a new study, a startling 19% of participants identified themselves as not-heterosexual when researchers used a method that provided more than usual anonymity. In a corresponding survey using  a standard, less anonymous method of questioning, only 11% of participants said that they were not heterosexual.

Before you get too excited, the researchers did point out that the people surveyed did not represent a random sample of the U.S. population, so the results could easily vary in a wider study. Rather than trying to gauge the size of the queer population, the study was designed to investigate whether existing studies were adequately accounting for “anti-gay sentiment.” Apparently, they were not.
