Queer Millennials Are Coming Out Sooner Than Older Generations

A recent study found that younger queer people are coming out much, much sooner than queer people from generations past.

A recently published survey explored numerous experiences related to being queer, with some of the milestones including coming out (by age group), traveling as an LGBTQ+ person, being out in the workplace, and more.

The survey, which was conducted by Bespoke Surgical, a leading private practice specializing in an elite standard of sexual health and wellness care for the modern gay male, revealed key differences between older and younger queer generations, especially when it comes to coming out.

Here are just a few of the interesting findings:

-Millennials are coming out 4-5 years sooner than previous generations. On average, Millennials are coming out after high school (around 18 years-old) while a lot of older generations came out after their college-aged years (around 23 years-old).

-40% of respondents also said they have had a negative experience while traveling as an open couple with their significant other. 40% also said they decided not to travel somewhere due to its reputation as being anti-LGBTQ+.

 

-60% of respondents said a company’s reputation for being LGBT-friendly is significant when deciding whether or not to work there.

-And 1 in 5 LGBTQ+ people said they experience homophobia daily, primarily slurs or from religious beliefs.
