This is an evidence review of the nature of inequality and relative disadvantage experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB&T) people in the UK. It critically assesses the nature, robustness and strength of evidence in order to highlight differences among and between LGB&T groups, as well as other relevant comparators.
The review takes a systematic approach, scoping and critically reviewing published and unpublished literature from 2008 onwards. It covers empirical research for the UK and its constituent parts, and focuses on nine areas. These are:
- safety, including hate crime and domestic violence;
- health and access to healthcare;
- access to and experience of services;
- LGB&T families, adoption and fostering;
- homelessness and access to housing provision;
- participation in civic society; and
- 16-19 year olds not in education, employment or training (NEETs).
