As a result of the extreme and irrational prejudice that remains and is still being promoted as evidenced on these threads, it is impossible to know the true number of LGBT people in population. Estimates vary widely.

"U.S. adults, on average, estimate that 25% of Americans are gay or lesbian. More specifically, over half of Americans (52%) estimate that at least one in five Americans are gay or lesbian, including 35% who estimate that more than one in four are. Thirty percent put the figure at less than 15%." http://www.gallup.com/poll/147824/adults-esti...

"Since most of the surveys mentioned are based on door to door or telephone based statistics, the numbers and percentages mentioned are strongly likely to be underreported since most LGBT people still live in fear of being outed by their local authorities and mostly their family members, therefore choose to hide their real sexual identity." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

"Other key findings were that an estimated 19 million Americans, or 8.2 percent of the population, said they have engaged in same-sex behavior, and 25.6 million, or 11 percent, acknowledged some same-sex attraction." http://blogs.laweekly.com/informer/2011/04/ho...

That extreme nonsense must be why even your friends are passing laws outlawing your exhibitionist behaviors.

Hardly surprising. The 'Tory' government has always been known for upholding 'traditional family values'
Whichever government eventually brings SSM into law will lose votes & members' support.....the only way I envisage it happening is if it's brought in at the beginning of a term....giving opponents 5 years to get over it
