So far, Gen Z Mormons look like millennials in their sexual orientation, only more so, according to the largest dataset we’ve ever had about Latter-day Saints in America.
June 21, 2021 By Jana Riess
(RNS) — More than a fifth of Generation Z Mormons do not self-identify as heterosexual, according to a major national study. One in 10 are bisexual.
The Nationscape dataset, which canvassed more than 318,000 Americans on a rolling basis in 2019 and 2020, had 3,881 self-identified members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the survey. This makes it one of the largest studies of Mormons ever fielded in the United States.
One of the most valuable aspects of the data is what it can tell us about the basic demographics of the Mormon population, including gender, race, geography and sexual orientation.
Not surprisingly, there is more sexual diversity among younger Latter-day Saints than older ones. As shown below, while 94% of boomers said they were heterosexual, just 77% of Generation Z did. (This analysis borrows Pew’s cutoff dates for the generations, which uses 1997 as the first birth year of Gen Z. Only adult Gen Zers over the age of 18 were eligible for the study.)
So, 23% of Gen Zers who identify as LDS say they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or other. And nearly as many (19%) of millennials did as well. It’s notable this finding is nearly double the 10% that Benjamin Knoll and I found among millennials in the 2016 Next Mormons Survey (which broke down into 7% bisexual, 2% gay or lesbian and 1% “other”).
Let’s unpack the Nationscape study’s finding of 23% a bit more. Within Gen Z, the major outliers compared with other generations of Mormons were the categories of bisexual and “other.”

It is false doctrine to claim that any lusts/sexual immorality is Christ-like. Sexuality is flesh and blood, it is indulgence, it is hell. Desire walks you blindly into traps and pits. Those that speak for Christians telling them to be okay with sexuality (whichever kind) are absolutely wolves in sheeps' clothing. Check out this passage from 2 Peter 2.
"But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. For if God did not spare the angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgements; and did not spare the ancient world, but preserve Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; and if he condemns the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter; and if he rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men ... then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment, and especially those who indulge the flesh and its corrupt desires and despise authority."
If there are any Christians reading this, let me be the ONE bold voice that stands to your face in pure love and only care for your soul - not the body and its desires which will only rot, but for your soul that will carry on FOREVER
That it is NOT God's will that you become like the world, that you conform to the agenda they beg you to embrace. Do not let lies fool you. Your God can save you, but you have to really turn to Him. He is ABLE TO SAVE. And you know it.
2 Timothy 4:3-5
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound Doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things..."

once my brother said this to me "And photos of beauty will always be more popular due to our generation and love of beauty itself but art is much deeper and complex and worth more than mere photos.Photos with no artistic intention still manage to resonate with people because they are pretty." and I was like..WOW.
