This study provides demographic and economic information for the more than 200,000 LGB Latino/a individuals and 52,410 Latinos/as in same-sex couples living in California. The study shows that nearly half of Latinas and 44% of Latinos in same-sex couples in California are raising nearly 25,000 children. Other key findings include more than 12% of the nation's Latinos/as in same-sex couples live in California, home to the largest number of Latino/as in same-sex couples among all states and LGB Latinos/as having similar citizenship rates as their heterosexual counterparts; however, LGB Latinos/as are more likely to be citizens by birth as opposed to naturalization.
