This population profile presents information about people who identify as LGBTQ+. Since this covers issues of both gender identity and sexual orientation, it’s a topic that can be challenging to talk about and ambiguous to define. This makes this population profile a little different from those covering personal characteristics such as age or ethnicity.

As you’ll come to see, the information and evidence presented here is based less on numbers, and more on overlapping ideas and principles. It reflects a very diverse group of people.

Is your organisation doing everything it can to engage positively with LGBTQ+ people? Download our Population Profile on LGBTQ+ People for the resources you need to get started.
