(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – Just under 40% of all students at Brown University identify as LGBTQI+, according to research by the school’s Brown Daily Herald.
According to the most recent data, the percentage of students at Providence, Rhode Island University who identify as LGBTQI+ has nearly tripled between 2010 and 2023 (from 14 percent in 2010 who said they were not heterosexual to 38 percent currently).
The nation has seen an upsurge in LGBTQ+ identity over the past ten years, with Brown experiencing remarkably rapid growth.
Since Fall 2010, Brown’s LGBTQ+ community has grown significantly. The percentage of students who identify as bisexual has surged by 232%, and the gay or lesbian population has grown by 26%, according to the student publication.
The number of students in the LGBTQ+ community who identify as having a different sexual orientation has increased by 793%.
The LGBTQ Center has relocated to a larger renovated space, “queer studies” is taught in various departments, and students frequent gay clubs, according to prior reporting by the Herald.
The 38% identification rate reported by The Washington Examiner is consistent with findings from the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology, which found comparable rates among prestigious universities.
In comments to the College Fix, the project’s researcher, Eric Kaufmann, said that his research revealed sexual behavior had not kept up with identification.
“If this was about people feeling able to come out, then we should have seen these two trends rise together,” he said to the College Fix.
Kaufmann added, “Instead, we find that identity is growing considerably more quickly than behavior, indicating that more and more people who only occasionally experience emotions of sex desire are coming out as LGBT.”
Roughly 20 percent of Gen Z adults identify as LGBT, and LGBT identification overall has become much more common in the past decade. https://t.co/xHHS1qHXan

Brown University has previously made headlines about gender issues.
According to reports, the university removed a study paper on gender dysphoria from its website in 2018 after receiving criticism from the LGBTQI+ community.
Professor Lisa Littman of the Brown University School of Public Health wrote a study on the gender dysphoria trend among youngsters. According to the article, youth are exhibiting “rapid-onset gender dysphoria.”
“In online forums, parents have been reporting that their children are experiencing what is described here as “rapid-onset gender dysphoria,” appearing for the first time during puberty or even after its completion.
The onset of gender dysphoria seemed to occur in the context of belonging to a peer group where one, multiple, or even all of the friends have become gender dysphoric and transgender-identified during the same timeframe.
Parents also report that their children exhibited an increase in social media/internet use prior to the disclosure of a transgender identity. The purpose of this study was to document and explore these observations and describe the resulting presentation of gender dysphoria, which is inconsistent with existing research literature.”
The study went on to say that social media platforms like YouTube and Tumblr may have contributed to the widespread belief among young people that they have a distinct gender identity.
Following worries that the research release would affect transgender people, Brown University removed it off the university website in an act of academic suppression.
The institution stated that the material would be taken down out of concern that it would be used to undermine efforts to empower transgender youth.
