65,572

Gay, lesbian, and bisexual men and women in the military, according to this study.  The breakdown of LGB men and women in the military is interesting as well.  They estimate that 12,952 of them are serving on active duty.  The rest are in the National Guard or reserve roles.   About 35,000 are men and then other 28,000 are women.  However, because there are more men than women in the military lesbian or bisexual women account for nearly 3% of women on active duty and almost 9% of those in the National Guard or reserves.  These numbers are about 1% and 3.5%, respectively, for men.

Update: Any of you who have taken a little bit of probability or statistics, scroll down to the appendix to see some nice Bayesian equations.
