Britain’s Government Said Just 1.5% Of The County Is Gay/Bi. Now Ghana Reports The Same Thing

When Britain released the results of its Integrated Household Survey that claimed just 1.5 percent of the population is gay or bi, officials were accused of lowballing their queer count. Now comes word that Ghana’s own Integrated Household Survey, which used a sample of 100,000 citizens, has a similarly small number: One percent of Ghana, or 200,000 people, are gay members of the tribe, while 0.5 percent identify as bi. Three percent said they didn’t know or opted not to answer the question. Like Britain, the IHS is the largest population data dump after the census. Though I’m sure the number would go up if we included all of Ghana’s fake scam dating profiles.
