"I Exist" survey now closed!

Publish Date: 25/08/2011

UPDATE 1st Dec 2011: The "I Exist" survey is now closed. Any surveys submitted after Nov 30th 2011 will not be counted. The LGF would like thank all participants and the findings will be published soon.

August 2011: The LGF have launched the "I Exist" survey, to find out about a range of issues affecting lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people, from health to homophobia and relationships to legal rights.

It only takes 15 minutes to complete, but the answers you give will be used to sustain and improve services for LGB people. It is vitally important that as LGB people we stand up for our needs and experiences, and have them acknowledged by decision makers.

In return for your time, there is the chance to win some fantastic prizes, including £500 worth of holiday vouchers, an iPad 2 or £100 worth of shopping vouchers!

The 2011 National Census was carried out to gather information necessary to planning and improving service provision across the country.

But there was no question asking about sexual orientation. This means there is still a lack of evidence about LGB people.

It is important that we are confident to make our needs and experiences heard, and to fight discrimination faced by lesbian, gay and bisexual people because of our sexual orientation.

We need to stand up and be counted, and say "I Exist!"
