Gays not positive about the future

by Editorial Staff in Health & Body , 06 november 2009

Gay men, lesbian women, bisexuals and transgender people are not very positive about the future and fear they’re going to be confronted with discrimination more often. This was the result of a research by anti-discrimination bureau RADAR.

Almost 40% of the participants agreed that they expect discrimination to occur more frequent in the future. An almost as big a group thinks social developments are going to influence the discrimination experience, says RADAR. This brought about by statements from religious leaders and political parties on the position of homosexuals.

Transgender people en transsexual people

A very small minority expects discrimination of homosexuality to decrease. Men are less positive than women (41% against 24% expects the situation to deteriorate). Transgender and transsexual people seem to be most pessimistic about their future but as the numbers of respondents in that group were very few, the results could not be deemed representative. Overall however, the results could not be called hopeful, says RADAR.
