A new survey of young Americans aged 13 to 20 years old also known, in marketing-speak, as "Generation Z" has found that they are far more open-minded and permissive than their older millennial counterparts when it comes to issues of gender and sexuality.

One in five sexually active lesbian teenagers in the United States also reported recently having sex with a man, according to the research, published in the Journal of Adolescent Health. In addition, lesbian teens reportedly lose their virginity at the average age of 13 years 9 months, which is significantly younger than bisexual 15 years 1 month and heterosexual 15 years 6 months girls.
But this time, there were two new questions. One asked students about their sexual orientation; the second asked the gender of their partners. States could choose which CDC questions to ask their teens; 27 states agreed, enough, researchers believe, to offer data that can be extrapolated to the rest of the country.

Using school-based population data over a year period tomultivariate logistic regressions were used to calculate age-adjusted odds ratios separately by gender. Interactions were included to test widening or narrowing disparities within orientation groups, which makes this one of the first studies to test whether gaps in disparities between heterosexual and sexual minorities have widened or narrowed over time.
