A report from the Williams Institute provides estimates of the number of undocumented and documented LGBT immigrants in the U.S., as well as estimates of the number of foreign-born residents who are part of a same-sex couple, and describes their demographic characteristics. The report finds that 1.3 million LGBT adult immigrants live in the U.S., representing 3 percent of all immigrants. Of these, 289,700 are undocumented, skewing younger and more male than other undocumented immigrants.
