The LGBT in Britain – Home and Communities Report shows persistent challenges for LGBT people in feeling comfortable being open about their sexual orientation or gender identity with their friends and family. Our report highlights deep challenges for the LGBT community, with alarming levels of racism experienced by black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) LGBT people, and a significant proportion of trans people, bi people, LGBT disabled people and LGBT people of faith feeling excluded within the LGBT community. 

Stonewall have produced this page focused on 15 things LGBTQ people of colour want you to know. They also have videos on our YouTube channel exploring the topic. 

GIRES have produced a document around BAME inclusivity.
