A new study has found that one-third of Generation Z, specifically those between the ages of 16 and 22, in Britain don’t identify as solely heterosexual.

Only 66 percent of those belonging to Generation Z say they are “exclusively heterosexual,” and that’s the lowest figure of any generation, according to the research by Ipsos Mori, as reported by The Telegraph.

The percentage of those identifying as solely heterosexual increases to 71 percent among millennials, 85 percent among those in Generation X, and 88 percent among baby boomers.

The study also shows that nearly 10 percent of Generation Z identify as bisexual, compared to about 1 percent among baby boomers, according to the Daily Mail.

Women in general are more likely than men to identify as bisexual, and men are more likely to identify as homosexual, the study adds.

Hannah Shrimpton, one of the authors of the report, tells the Telegraph that there is now a “hugely greater exposure to communications on the variety of lifestyles available to young people today through social technology.”

She adds, “In particular, this generation of young has grown up at a time when gender as a simple binary and fixed identity has been questioned much more widely — this is new, and will affect wider views of gender, sexuality and much broader aspects of identity.”
