LGBT Foundation is committed to amplifying LGBT voices across everything we do.

This principle lies at the heart of our research work.

In this section, we showcase our comprehensive evidence base, providing you (as community members, researchers, professionals, and policy-makers) with the information you need to effectively challenge decisions that affect the lives of LGBT people.
