If instead of focusing on the community LGTB +. We broadened the spectrum to the entire population, we found that 5,5% of women consider themselves bisexual, 1,3% lesbian, 92% heterosexual and 0,9% do not know or do not answer. Applying the same question to men, the salient percentage is that 2% of them consider themselves bisexual, 1,9% gay, 95% heterosexual and 1% do not know or do not answer. A priori are data in which the population LGTB + it is well below the 10% of which so much is talked about. But depending on the type of question we get different answers. For example: 81% of women and 92,1 of men declare that they are only attracted to the opposite sex. In other words, 19% of women and 7,9% of men say they are attracted to other people.

Age also matters, it is observed that the younger there is, the more percentage of people who do not consider themselves completely gay or lesbian or heterosexual.
