About 2 percent of the US identifies as lesbian, gay, or bisexual, according to a first-of-its-kind national survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In a report released Tuesday, the CDC found that, of the 34,557 surveyed, 96.6 percent identified as straight, 1.6 percent identified as lesbian or gay, 0.7 percent identified as bisexual, and 1.1 percent identified as "something else," "refuse to answer," or "I don't know the answer."
