(RNS) — More than 1-in-5 Latter-day Saint college students (22%) say they are something other than heterosexual, according to a new survey from FIRE (the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression).

Political scientist Ryan Burge discussed the findings in his twice-weekly Graphs About Religion substack. While the overall FIRE survey included more than 55,000 respondents, Burge restricted his analysis to those students in the 18 to 25 age bracket, narrowing the sample to around 39,000.

Of those 39,000 respondents in the 18 to 25 age group, 709 identified as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Mormons.
