Monitoring Sexual Orientation, Gender and Trans Status

Profile Picture

Over the last two decades, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) community has seen legislative change which has led to greater acceptance. However, there is still a huge lack of evidence about LGBT people, our needs and experiences.
