In the interest of transparency, I am not LGBT, I am straight.
The American public seem to overestimates the percentage of LGBT people in the U. S. In a "Gallup Daily tracking poll" for the first four months of 2015 (up to April 2015), 3.8% of the adult population identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. However, when asked, most Americans' think that number, on average, is 23%. So you see that the LGBT community is actually much smaller then most American assume.
This means, about 4 out of every hundred people you talk to identify themselves as LGBT. I would totally guess that 2 or 3 times that are "in the closet", to I would guess that 8 to 12 out of a hundred people are actually LGBT, but I may be full of crap on that (I have no data on that)
