Consultation description

Before you start

To respond to this survey, you should be:

  1. lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex, or have a minority sexual orientation or gender identity
  2. 16 years old or over
  3. living in the UK

About this survey

We want to know more about the experiences that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people have living in the UK.

This survey asks about:

  • your experiences of accessing and using public services in the UK
  • any experiences of discrimination you may have faced throughout your life

You will be asked about your experiences at work, in education, in healthcare, and about your personal safety. We want to collect as much information as possible, but you don’t have to answer every question if you don’t want to.

The survey is anonymous: no one will be able to tell who you are at any point.

The survey takes around 15 minutes to answer. You can complete the survey in one go, or save your answers and come back to it later.

After the survey closes, we will analyse the results and use them to inform our plans to improve LGBT equality. We will publish our findings on GOV.UK when this analysis is completed. No one will be able to identify you from the results when they are published.

If you are affected by any of the issues mentioned in this survey, and want further support, we have published information about places you can get help and support from.

Easy Read version

We have created an Easy Read version of the national LGBT survey. Easy Read documents are simpler versions for use by people with learning difficulties.

You should use this version if you would find the full survey too hard to fill in.

Once you have filled in the Easy Read survey, you can upload it or post it to us.
