Supplementary notes

* The study surveyed a total of 1,964 LGBT professionals (198 in Brazil, 200 in China, 200 in Hong Kong, 196 in India, 200 in Russia, 193 in Singapore, 182 in South Africa, 200 in Turkey, 195 in the UK, and 200 in the US).
The source adds the following information: "LGBT respondents include those who self-identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual, as well as those who report that the sex assigned to them at birth does not match their current gender identity or that neither male nor female fully describes their gender".
For the sake of simplicity, sexual orientation and gender identity are used indistinctively in this statistic.
The source does not provide the original wording of the question posed during the survey. The wording of the question chosen for this statistic may therefore differ slightly from the original.
The source does not specify the age of respondents.
