Question

Bisexual people often experience ridicule from both heterosexual people and lesbian and gay people, whether in the workplace, when using public services, or within LGBT community groups. It is therefore very important that efforts to promote LGBT equality represent and include the experiences of bisexual people. What steps have you specifically taken to tackle these problems in London?

My bi-annual LGBT, and separate trans stakeholder group meetings, represent and include the experiences of bisexual people, which in turn informs policy and strategy development. The experiences of bisexual people are mainstreamed, not separated out.
