This research, published in October 2005, sought to develop some of the themes explored in ‘In or Out?’ December 2004, and focused on making contact with LGBT organisations in other parts of the UK, to share the findings from our research and engage in dialogue. We looked at previous research carried out in both Scotland and Wales amongst the LGBT communities that extended our reading of the background literature on aspects of LGBT community history and activity. We also conducted deskbased research about the broader policy agenda, exploring material suggested by our earlier work. We returned to some of our original informants to review the situation within the LGBT community in Sussex, consider the findings of our original Sussex-based case study within a wider social policy context and to draw out some key messages for funders and policy makers.
This research was co-produced with Anne Bellis.
