According to a 2020 Gallop poll, less than 1% of all U.S. adults consider themselves Transgender. In that same study, Gallup estimates that 5.6% of the U.S. adult population is either lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

South Carolina’s population of LGBT adults ranks near the bottom of that study with less than 3% of all South Carolinians considering themselves LGBT.
