These Are Your Millennials, America

Millennials are the largest and most diverse generation in America. For our New Boom series, we asked millennials (ages 18-34) to take a selfie that includes their Census categories for identity (race, ethnic origin, sex) and the categories they wish they could choose. The result is a lovely mix of faces from across the country, none of whom will be penned in by a check box or two.

We're still taking your submissions (c'mon millennial men!) — tag them on Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram with #NPRCensus. Join the conversation on social media with #NewBoom.
