What percentage of the population do you think is LGBT and why?
Mario Galdamez — The number that always gets thrown out is 10 percent, but I’m not sure.
David Kemp — 3 to 5 percent, based on some studies I’ve read. It’s hard to say. I live in San Francisco but that seems faily accurate.
Chris Seitz — Openly gay? 10 to 15 percent. Secretly or gay curious? Maybe 30.
Heather Sullivan — Half the world.
Steve Riddiough — I would actually lean toward 15 percent, higher than the normal 10 percent. I think a lot more people are more willing to say now than previously.
