Approximately half of Gen Z identifies as something other than cisgender or heterosexual.

Mormons, Southern Baptists, et al. are not prepared and will continue to lose more people in the pews...

According to Pew, Gen Z is the most ​diverse​ generation of Americans, ever. Based on what our Gen Z respondents told us, that diversity seems to manifest as a sense of fluidity that seeps into all of their identifications. More Gen Z respondents than any other generation reported identifying as not heterosexual, not cis-gender, and not rigidly masculine or feminine. The majority said they understand why labels are useful, but still find them too limiting. And they were much more likely than older generations to acknowledge that parts of themselves are more authentic online, while others are more real in person.
Beyond being the most diverse amongst themselves, the oldest members of Gen Z are maturing amid a ​boom​ of representation for marginalized people in popular culture. And overall, Gen Z respondents appeared adamant about protecting other people’s freedom to be themselves or break from the norm—whether that means breaking down stigma against multiracial relationships or ensuring diversity education in workplaces and schools.

41% said they identify as neutral on the spectrum of masculinity and femininity.
More so than older respondents (1 in 2), Gen Z respondents predicted that in the next 10 years, one's job will become increasingly important for expressing one’s personal identity. Meanwhile, 4 in 10 said that ethnicity and gender will become less important.

62% felt strongly that people should be able to use any identity label with which they feel comfortable, compared to only 52% of Millennial and just 36% of Gen X respondents.

What is the likelihood that this situation, this diversity, these ratios, have ALWAYS existed?

But the trend holds true for even for Gen X and Millenials -- support for orientation and gender variation encreases with younger generations.
