- At least 7% of American Jews (just under 500,000) identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB). We have very limited quantitative data on transgender Jews.
- 31% of LGB respondents to a large 2007 national Jewish survey were partnered or married.
- Interfaith relationships are the norm. The same survey found only 11% of LGB Jews partnered with other Jews (roughly one third of those LGB Jews who reported being partnered).
