Number of Brown University Students Identifying as LGBTQ Doubles to Nearly 40 Percent

At the Ivy League school Brown University, nearly 40 percent of the student population now suddenly claims to identify as part of the LGBTQ crowd, more than double the amount it was in 2010.

As the New York Post reports, a poll from the school’s student newspaper, The Brown Daily Herald, showed that 38 percent of Brown students defined themselves as either homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, or otherwise questioning their sexuality. This amount is significantly higher than the previous total recorded in 2010, at just 14 percent, and is more than five times the national total.

The school’s undergraduate population was at 7,222 in the Fall of 2022, with 3,515 in its graduate programs and medical school. Thus, out of a total student population of 10,737, there are allegedly 4,080 students who believe themselves to be something other than straight.

Since the paper’s first survey of homosexuality in 2010, the percentage of students simply identifying as gay or lesbian dropped from 46 percent to 22 percent, while other deviant sexualities rose in the same period. Of that group, approximately 19 percent are students from Generation Z, the youngest generation. The number of students claiming to be bisexual rose by 232 percent, with all other sexual identities rising by a collective total of 793 percent.

The survey found that the most common sexual identity is still bisexual, of which 53.7 percent of Brown students identify.

These numbers from Brown reflect when many have called a clear trend in recent years, as homosexuality and the other elements of the LGBTQ agenda have been more widely promoted by the culture, from education to entertainment, thus leading to more students and young people simply declaring themselves to be LGBTQ in order to fit in with their social scenes. Experts have referred to this phenomenon as “social contagion.”

“There are two theories,” said Eric Kauffman, a professor of political science at the University of London. “That greater tolerance is allowing more to come out of the closet, or Bill Maher’s assertion that LGBT is trendy among some youth. I think the second theory better fits the data and explains more of why the rise occurred.”

Kauffman pointed to a recent study from the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology, which showed that, although LGBTQ identification has risen in recent years, the rates of sexual activity within those groups have not risen, suggesting that those who claim to be LGBTQ are not actually acting upon those newfound impulses.

“If this was about people feeling able to come out, then we should have seen these two trends rise together,” Kauffman continued. “What we find instead is that identity is rising much faster than behavior, indicating that people with occasional rather than sustained feelings of attraction to the opposite sex are increasingly identifying as LGBT.”

  1. Maher’s right; this is a fashion statement. My kids recently graduated from high school and both knew a bunch of classmates who were claiming to have all these degenerate sexual orientations, never really practiced the weirdness and are in standard relationships and/or have gender appropriate interests.

  2. Chuckle. They are ALL guilty of sexual appropriation! I think that calls for boycotts, demonstrations, and episodes of clever chanting.
