Readers of San Diego Gay & Lesbian News who took our poll say they came out at different times in their lives. The poll question was one of the most popular in SDGLN history.
Our poll question was: When did you come out?
The results, which are not scientific, reveal that 37% of readers come out while they were in college, 31% as adults, 30% as teenagers and only 2% before they were teens.
The results may reflect generational differences of readers, with many readers younger than 30 having grown up with LGBT role models in popular culture such as television and the movies.
The new SDGLN ReaderPoll question asks readers: How will you observe the Fourth of July?
