An analysis of data from the Generations Study, a nationally representative sample of sexual minorities, found that 6% of sexual minority adults in the US identify as queer. Those who identify as queer are overwhelmingly cisgender women or genderqueer/nonbinary (GQNB).

They are also younger and more highly educated than other sexual minorities. In terms of sexuality, queer individuals are more likely than other sexual minorities to report attraction to, and sexual relationships with, transgender and GQNB people, though differences emerge by gender identity.

The article was published in the Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity.
