lesbian and gay people’s identity is about more than their sexuality. Sadly,
members of minority groups have not always found acceptance within the LGB
community. Disabled lesbians and gay men face double disadvantage, including homophobia within the disabled community and service providers and disablism within the LGB community, groups and venues. Access continues to be an issue to gay venues for people with physical and mobility impairments.
Various support groups have been organised by and for lesbian and gay people who are members of other minorities.
Various acts have legislated against discrimination on the grounds of disability (Disability Discrimination Act 1996) and more recently the [Goods and Services (Sexual Orientation)] regulations in 2007.
