Yale: More Freshman Identify as ‘Queer’ Than ‘Conservative’



According to a Wednesday report, Freshman at Yale College who identify as “queer” far outnumber those who identify as “conservative.”

“A Yale Daily News survey of freshmen students at that university found that more students of the class of 2022 identify on the LGBTQ spectrum than as conservative, and that queer freshmen even outnumber other sizable demographics in the class, such as Protestants and Catholics,” the report said.

The survey polled 864 first-year students.

Only nine percent of the respondents referred to themselves as “somewhat conservative,” and only one percent as “very conservative.”

Meanwhile, 22 percent of respondents identified themselves as either gay, bisexual, asexual, “ace spectrum” or questioning their sexual orientation – in other words, somewhere on the LGBT spectrum.

But according to Gallup, only around four and a half percent of Americans on the whole identify as LGBT, meaning the population is vastly overrepresented among Yale’s freshman class of about 1,600 students.

Protestants came in at 16 percent, and Catholics at 15 percent, according to the poll.

Expectedly, liberals far outnumbered conservatives on campus too.

“‘Nearly three-fourths’ of surveyed students identified as liberal, with thirty percent identifying as ‘very liberal,’” according to the report. “These disparities are mirrored in the faculty composition at Yale: A 2017 Daily News survey of Yale professors found that three-quarters identified as liberal while less than 10 percent identified as conservative. Over 90 percent of faculty members in the humanities identified as liberal while that number hovered in the mid-60s for STEM faculty.”

If college campuses are beacons for social justice, Yale is the mecca.
