Close to 30% of Gen Z Adults , Identify As LGBTQ, , Survey Finds.

NBC reports that a new survey has found that over 1 in 4 Gen Z adults in the United States identify as either lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer.

According to a report released by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI), 28% of Gen Z adults identify as LGBTQ, dwarfing the percentage of older age groups.

Comparatively, the survey found that 10% of all U.S. adults, 16% of millennials, 7% of Generation X, 4% of baby boomers and 4% of the Silent Generation identify as LGBTQ.

With respect to LGBTQ identity, it’s very clear that Gen Z adults look different than older Americans, Melissa Deckman, PRRI chief executive, via NBC.

NBC reports that the findings are similar to other major surveys, including a Gallup poll that showed Gen Z to be the queerest adult generation.

Gallup's most recent poll found that 7.2% of adults in the U.S. identify as LGBTQ, including 20% of Gen Z.

.

The news comes as LGBTQ rights have been increasingly challenged across the U.S., with over 500 anti-LGBTQ bills introduced last year.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, 75 of those bills were signed into law.

Whether it’s at the polls, in marches and rallies, or online, LGBTQ+ visibility matters and Gen Z is a force for change, Kelley Robinson, President of the Human Rights Campaign, via NBC.

Thousands of LGBTQ+ young people turn 18 each day — and lawmakers should understand there will be repercussions in November for anti-LGBTQ+ political attacks, Kelley Robinson, President of the Human Rights Campaign, via NBC

Parents Financially Supporting Gen Z Highlights Current Economic Woes

Parents Financially Supporting Gen Z , Highlights Current , Economic Woes. 'Newsweek' reports that a recent survey found that 47% of parents are financially supporting their adult Gen Z children. While this number includes everything from credit card bills to vacations, another 60% said they are still covering their kids' monthly rent. Overall, the survey by Savings.com found that parents are paying twice as much for their adult children than they are contributing to their retirement savings every month. The survey found that parents are contributing an average of $1,384 per month to their kids, and just $609 to their savings. 'Newsweek' reports that while some may accuse Gen Z of mooching off their parents, analysts suggest it may be a sign of the current state of the economy. Amid surging rent and food prices, many Gen Z-ers are entering low paying jobs while also shouldering massive student debt. There is a clear challenge in the economy today. Driven by a convoluted mix of socioeconomic factors, adults receive help from their parents well into their twenties, thirties, and beyond, Beth Klongpayabal, Savings.com's analytics manager, via 'Newsweek'. For some, it's tempting to simply say that today's young adults are just mooches and that a strong foot in the rear will launch them into normal, independent adulthood, Beth Klongpayabal, Savings.com's analytics manager, via 'Newsweek'.

Federal Benefit Helping Low-Income Households Afford Internet Coming to an End [Video]

Federal Benefit Helping Low-Income Households Afford Internet Coming to an End

Federal Benefit Helping , Low-Income Households , Afford Internet Coming to an End. CNN reports that next month, low-income Americans face a crisis that threatens millions of households with economic distress. The United States government says that it can only pay about half of what it owes on a popular federal benefits program. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announcement represents the first tangible impact of Congress' failure to extend the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The pandemic-era benefit provides monthly discounts on internet service for over 23 million households in the U.S. As a result of dwindling funds, April will be the last month households can receive full benefits. . In May, ACP will only be able to provide 46% of the normal benefit payments before ending entirely in June. The end of the program means that millions of people will have to choose between paying for internet, housing and food. According to the FCC, Internet service providers (ISPs) could decide to close the gap for millions of households that will be impacted by the program coming to an end. We encourage providers to take efforts to keep consumers connected at this critical time, FCC statement, via CNN. The FCC went on to add that ISPs could offer discounts, low-cost internet plans or take other measures to ensure that service is not interrupted for millions of low-income Americans.
