LOS ANGELES — At the two-year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision guaranteeing same-sex couples the right to marry nationwide, the Williams Institute is publishing a research brief finding that 1.1 million LGBT adults are married to someone of the same sex.

Other keys findings include:

- An estimated 10.7 million adults in the U.S. identify as LGBT

- More than 547,000 same-sex couples in the U.S. are married.

- Since the Obergefell decision in June 2015, at least 157,000 same-sex couples have married in the United States.

The Williams Institute, a think tank on sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy, is dedicated to conducting rigorous, independent research with real-world relevance.
