Lgbt persons are significantly more lonely

More than one fourth lgbt person has the last year been avoided to move certain public places and every other gay man often fail, or always to keep in hand with his partner because of fear of discrimination or violence.

in Addition, feel over five times as many lgbt people as other danes alone.

It shows the new report that will minister Mogens Jensen (S) to declare himself both upset and worried.

- It is disappointing and sad that it is still such in the year 2020 in Denmark, that people with a different sexuality on such a large scale fail to do the things you normally do with her boyfriend, says Mogens Jensen.

He bites also notice that over half of the respondents in the report say they are not open about their sexuality in the workplace.

He acknowledges that Denmark has come a long way as a progressive country with a liberal legislation in the area.

- Nevertheless, it is not satisfactory when so many do not dare to be open about who they are as persons, says Mogens Jensen.

the Report is prepared by the Als Research for the minister. A total of 3571 lgbt people have the answer.

At the national Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people (lgbt), LGBT Denmark, says head of secretariat Susanne Branner, that one is well aware that many lgbt people feel vulnerable and discriminated against.

- Report here stresses once again that the permissiveness, we pride ourselves in Denmark, is very different from the lived reality, she says.

She believes that there should be much more focus on the problem already in the primary school, if the situation really needs to be improved.

- It, you are greeted with in today's elementary school, is a ciskønnet, heteronormativt sight. There is a striking lack of focus on it here in school, she says.

The flawed relationships give rise to act - also political, says Mogens Jensen.

- We have taken the initiative to a lovgennemgang, where we look at how the legislation for lgbt people. If there are things that need to be addressed, so that we through legislation sends the right signals, he says.

According to Susanne Branner, it is, among other things, to create meeting places out in the province for lgbt people.

- Almost half of the adult lgbt population lives in Copenhagen. If we want the here mistrivsel to life, you have to have your places to meet like-minded much earlier in life, she says.
