LGBT numbers explode at Ivy League schools as overwhelmingly liberal student bodies surpass Gen Z national average

Most Ivy League schools have LGBT rates that far surpass national averages, according to the latest polling numbers by the educational institutions themselves.

Brown University made headlines in early July 2023 when it reported that 38% of its student body identified with a sexuality other than straight — doubling its numbers from 2010 — far above the national numbers for Generation Z (1997-2004), which Gallup determined to be 19.7%.

After a review of five other Ivy League school's self-reported numbers, Brown is not an anomaly by any stretch of the imagination, but it is indeed a front runner.

As reported by the New York Post, numbers have soared at the once prestigious institutions, which now routinely publish their gender and sexuality censuses as a point of pride.

The Daily Princetonian reported shockingly high numbers, similar to Brown University. The school's bisexual, "queer," gay, asexual, lesbian, unsure, and pansexual numbers represented more than 35% of the school's respondents.

An astounding number of asexual students (5%) are represented at the school, a rate that is 50 times the national average (0.1%).

As well, nearly half of those surveyed identify as politically left, with slightly liberal, very liberal, and leftist/socialist totaling 45%. Just 11% identified as right of center.

According to Yale Daily News, around 29% of its responding student body identified as something other than straight, as the school boasted that it "welcomed the largest and most diverse class in University history."

More specifically, 14% said they were bisexual, 6% gay/lesbian, 8% "questioning," and 1% asexual.

Politically, 74% "characterized their political leanings as leaning left."

Over at Harvard, the 2023 class had about a 21% non-straight population, according to the Harvard Crimson. But the school is ready to outdo itself, as the class of 2025 will increase that number to 29%. That rate is a more than 18% increase from the class of 2017, which was represented by an 89.9% straight student body.

The Cornell Daily Sun reported its latest numbers at 21% of 589 students who responded as not identifying as straight. Of students who were asked, 69% were virgins, while 65% identified as either somewhat liberal or very liberal. Just 13% were conservative.

Perhaps the outlier, the University of Pennsylvania said that 15% of its student population "self-identify as LGBTQ+."

The school's LGBT center also brags about its 24 gay student groups and the fact that it has 94 faculty members on its "Out List," which is quite literally a list of faculty who have agreed to put themselves on a public-facing website to showcase that they are LGBT.

Numbers for Columbia University and Dartmouth College were not publicly available.
