“Coming Out Earlier"

A survey by the LGBT rights group Stonewall found that gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender folks in the UK are coming out at a younger age.  The poll, which was not a scientific study, surveyed 1,536 people and found the following results:

For those 60 years and older, their average age for coming out was 37, for those in their 30s the age was 21, and for those under age 18, the average coming out age was 15.

Stonewall’s Ruth Hunt suspects people are coming out earlier because more LGBT people are visible in public life and on television.

Hunt told the Guardian, “What we’re seeing is an explosion of role models and people talking about being gay, so people are more able to associate what they’re feeling with something they can see.”
