For the first time since the study began, more young people identify as bisexual than homosexual. Among 16-24 year olds 1.8 percent said they considered themselves bisexual, while 1.5 percent identified as homosexual, according to the study by the Office of National Statistics. According to the Independent “In three years the number of British people defining themselves as bisexual has risen by 45 per cent, with the 2015 ONS Annual Population Survey (APS) estimating that 334,000 people in the UK openly identify as bisexual, compared to 230,000 in 2012.”
So, what accounts for this change? Openly gay bisexuals like Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart, and Cara Delevingne have brought being sexually fluid more in the public eye, according to the research team.
