The proportion of young women in the UK identifying as lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB) has more than doubled in five years and now stands at around one in 10, new data suggests.

Some 10.6 per cent of women aged 16 to 24 identified as LGB in 2022, up from 4.8 per cent in 2017, according to estimates from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Among 16 to 24-year-old men the proportion is slightly lower, at 7.9 per cent in 2022 – around one in 13 – up from 3.8 per cent in 2017.
