Best Answer

Most scientists put the number of homosexuals in the world between 4% and 10%.

According to the Oct. 2008 Census Snapshot published by the Williams Institute (using 2005-2006 ACS data), the number of LGB (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual) people living in California was 861,000 individuals, and 109,000 same gender couples.

This is approximately 1,079,000 LGB people. The population of California was 36,458,000 in 2006 (according to year 2000 data extrapolated from the US census by the NY times).

The percentage of LGB people in California is 2.96% of the population.
