In July 2017, the Government launched a national survey of LGBT people. The survey was open to anyone who identified as having a minority sexual orientation, gender identity or had variations in sex characteristics.
It asked questions about people’s experiences of living in the UK and in accessing public services. It asked questions about education, healthcare, personal safety and employment.
The survey received more than 108,000 responses, making it the largest national survey of its kind anywhere in the world. This response was unprecedented, and it was a significant undertaking to analyse the results.
This is the Action Plan arising from that survey.
It explains how the Government will advance the rights of LGBT people both at home and abroad, and improve the way that public services work for them. The vision is for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or sex characteristics, to be able to live safe, happy and healthy lives where they can be themselves without fear of discrimination.
