DISCRIMINATION AGAINST LESBIAN AND GAY PEOPLE
EDM #1403
Tabled 23 April 2008
2007-08 Session
That this House recognises that despite equality legislation, lesbian and gay people are still subject to discrimination and abuse on account of their sexuality in the United Kingdom; notes the recent research by Stonewall that found that nearly one in five lesbian and gay people has experienced homophobic bullying in the workplace during the last five years and suggests that homophobic bullying in schools is on the increase; further notes that the research found that many lesbian and gay people felt they were not treated the same as heterosexual people in politics, education, the justice system, and in health and social care; and calls on the Government to take steps to tackle the continuing problem of homophobic bullying and to introduce the same duty on public bodies to promote equality of service for gay people that already exists for ethnicity, gender and disability.
