There's a new trend coming out of the South, in particular Houston and Atlanta. Female studs are trying out a new style - a full beard, MTO News has learned..
We're not talking about transgenders here. We're talking about gay women who identify themselves as females.
The process involves the women going to specially trained barbers/stylists and hetting a "beard weave." It's pretty amazing.
Here's a video done by a popular Houston stylist - showing off the process:
The number of Americans who identify as LGBTQ has been steadily increasing each year. Gallup's latest update on lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender identification finds 5.6% of U.S. adults identifying as LGBT. The current estimate is up from 4.5% in Gallup's previous update based on 2017 data.
The increase could be a result o people being more open to accept the LGBTQ label - or something else at work.
Currently, 86.7% of Americans say they are heterosexual or straight, and 7.6% do not answer the question about their sexual orientation. Gallup's 2012-2017 data had roughly 5% "no opinion" responses.
The latest results are based on more than 15,000 interviews conducted throughout 2020 with Americans aged 18 and older. Gallup had previously reported annual updates from its 2012-2017 daily tracking survey data, but did not routinely measure LGBT identification in 2018 or 2019.
