The LGBTQ Victory Institute's "Out for America 2021" report found that the number of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer elected officials increased by 17 percent in the past year, bringing the total number nationwide to 986.

But the institute, which supports LGBTQ people running for office, noted that queer people make up 5.6 percent of the U.S.

To have the same proportion of queer people in elected office as there are in the general population, Americans would have to elect 28,116 more officials who are LGBTQ, the report found.

The report found that in the past year, the number of queer officials of color grew more than the number of white queer officials, by 51 percent and 9 percent, respectively.

Of LGBTQ officials of color, the number of Black queer elected officials grew the most, from 52 in 2020 to 91 in 2021 — a 75 percent increase.

Two specific demographics have grown the most in the last four years: The number of trans women elected has jumped by 800 percent, from four in 2017 to 36 in 2021, and the number of bisexual elected officials has increased by 787 percent, from eight to 71.
