The terms ‘LGBT community’ and ‘LGBT communities’ are often used, but how much do we know about how these terms are understood – and how people experience this ‘community’ or these ‘communities’?
This UK research project aims to address these questions, and explore the impact on lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) health, wellbeing and ‘quality of life’.
If you would like to be involved and contribute your opinion or experiences, you can do this in a number of ways.
For further details about the project, or information about how to participate, please take a look around.
12/11/12: The research report has now been launched – huge thanks to everyone who contributed to the study! See the Outcomes page for downloads
18/9/12: Booking for the final conference (to take place on 9.11.12 in Sheffield) is now open (and filling up fast!) – please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to register for a free place
11/9/12: Project fieldwork is now complete and data analysis has begun. The survey will close on 30.9.12. If you would like to attend the final project event keep 9.11.12 free!

18/6/12: It’s not too late to sign up for the Bristol workshop in July! Just let Eleanor know if you’re interested.

Again, just get in touch if you want to know more about this
13/5/12: Thanks very much for people’s contributions to the website recently – many apologies these have taken some time to be published, due to technical difficulties!
12/4/12: People have been commenting on the existing posts within ‘LGBT Now!’ – feel free to add your thoughts, too – or start a new post!
2/4/12: The website is getting ‘out there’ and people are completing the survey, which is great! Please do make comments in the survey’s ‘open-ended’ questions, on this website, or by email if you think the survey questions aren’t addressing quite how you feel, or what you want to say
