There is no accurate data on the numbers of men and women who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) in Lincolnshire, reflecting a national problem with accurate statistical analysis.
Both Stonewall and HM Treasury concur that between 5 – 7% of the population of the UK are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, but acknowledge the difficulty in accurate analysis. In Lincolnshire this represents over 50,000 people.
Local representatives from the LGBT community support the “hidden” population of transgender people. JUST Lincolnshire will work with partner agencies to make sure they can deliver on their responsibility to ensure that service provision, employment practices and policy making does not disadvantage LGBT people, and that we develop members of the community to become community leaders and to support employers and service providers in tackling unfair treatment, harassment or discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. JUST Lincolnshire will work with representatives from the LGBT community in Lincolnshire to ensure appropriate consideration is given to its needs with regard to service provision, policy making and employment matters by our partners, member organisations and the wider society.
