STUDY: Gay Men Really Do Drink Cocktails And Go To The Gym!

Community Marketing, Inc released its latest LGBT community survey, which culled some pretty interesting data from 14,000 respondents across America. A few queer morsels to ponder:

* 77% of gay men and 84% of lesbians plan to vote for Barack Obama, while 76% of bisexual and 80% of transgender respondents plan to.

* 82% of lesbians and 91% of gay men own “smartphones,” up 23% from 2011. The most popular smartphone is iPhone (with Android phones quickly gaining ground), and the most popular tablet is iPad.

* Gay men drink a third the amount of beer as heterosexual men, but drink 50% more cocktails. Lesbians consume similar amounts of alcoholic beverages as straight women.

* Half of gay men under age 30 have a gym membership.

* The term “LGBT” is preferred to describe the community by gay men—and nobody likes the alphabet-soup grouping LGBTQQIA.

Well, we could’ve told you that last one.
