So the Office for National Statistic released some interesting stats today about the number of young people who identify as Bisexual.
The ONS released statistic today that show that the number of young people who identify as bisexual has increased by 45 percent in just three years.
This is the first time that more young people have described themselves as bisexual rather than gay or lesbian. A survey by YouGov last year revealed that 50 per cent of people aged 18-24 defined themselves something other than purely heterosexual. Overall a quarter of the entire population revealed that they felt this way.

In the most recent statistic released by the ONS 1.8 per cent identified themselves as bi, while 1.5 per cent said they were gay or lesbian.
However, it hasn’t stopped some social media users commenting that people are referring to themselves as LGBT+ because it’s “trendy” or fashionable rather than you know, the truth.
Being gay is fashionable so people who are probably wouldn't feel uncomfortable now.
