Sexual orientation

We aim to tackle inequality related to sexual orientation.

 Sexual Orientation

There is no hard data on the number of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals in the UK as no national census has ever asked people to define their sexuality. The Government and Stonewall estimate that 5-7% of the population is Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgender.

The Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS) can provide expert information, advice and support on discrimination and human rights issues and the applicable law, especially if you need more help than advice agencies and other local organisations can provide.
