Sex & Sexuality Featuring Noah Michelson

Sex & Sexuality Featuring Noah Michelson | PinkieB.com | LGBTQ+ Life | Scoop.it

I’m Noah Michelson and I’m from Racine, Wisconsin, which is a good place to go home to now but not a great place to grow up if you’re queer and especially in the 80s. And I was the queerest kid that I’ve ever met that I think anyone has ever met. I came out of the womb, ready to go. And not just queer but also super sexual and I don’t really know where that came from. And I don’t think anyone really does. And when I say that, my first memories and my first urges and desires were wanting to have sex with men. I had crushes on Mr. Rogers, I had a crush on Jesus, any kind of masculine figure in my life, I wanted to have sex with them.

Where America's LGBT population lives

Washington, D.C., Oregon and Delaware have comparatively large estimated shares of adult residents who identify as LGBT, per a recent analysis. Why it matters: It's difficult to pin down the exact size of the LGBT population nationwide or in any given state, in part because gold-standard data collection efforts like the decennial census or the American Community Survey lac
