Lesbian and bisexual Women The Equality Authority Report Implementing Equality for Lesbians, Gay and Bisexuals in 2002 examined a wide range of themes relevant to lesbians, gay and bisexual people.
The report stated “many LGB people remain very isolated without access to supports or social outlets for meeting other gay people. This has consequences, both in terms of the impact on the individual’s health, social well-being and personal development and in terms of lost contributions to the broader community”. (See this pdf)
