Evidence Digest, Focus Issue: LGBTIQ+ and disability inclusion

Front page of document
Date published

To celebrate Pride month, the Disability Inclusion Helpdesk has produced an evidence digest on LGBTIQ+ and disability inclusion. Whilst there is a shortage of evidence and guidance available on the experiences and needs of LGBTIQ+ people with disabilities, the available evidence suggests that LGBTIQ+ people with disabilities face compounding discrimination and marginalisation based on both their disability status and sexual orientation, gender identity, expression, and sex characteristics. This creates barriers to education, employment, healthcare, and participation in society, with negative effects on the mental health and prosperity of LGBTIQ+ people with disabilities.
