LGBT & Ethnicity

The Foundation has written a letter with members of the Inter-Religious Advisory Board to the Minister for Equalities, who has oversight of the Race & Disparities Commission, to share their concerns about the lack of LGBT+ representation, particularly for those , on the newly appointed Commission.

As research from from the Naz & Matt Foundation has found, 70% of UK LGBTQ+ individuals who are rejected by their religious or culturally conservative parents experience anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts.
