Individuals who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT), and those who are perceived to be LGBT, are disproportionately affected by bullying. Homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying is unacceptable and the Government is determined to tackle it.

As the Department responsible for equality strategy and legislation across Government, Ministers for the Government Equalities Office regularly meet with members of the Cabinet and with Ministers from other Government Departments. Such meetings are used as an opportunity to discuss issues affecting LGBT people and how Departments can work together to reduce the inequalities LGBT people face.
