The results of the survey come as the Government was urged to do more to combat sexual harassment of LGBT people in the workplace. The TUC said its research had found that more than two-thirds of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have been sexually harassed at work. Around one in six said they left their job as a result of the sexual harassment and a similar number said it had caused them to avoid meeting people who were harassing them. The TUC said that under current law there is no legal duty on employers to take proactive action to prevent harassment in their workplaces, with the onus being on the victim to report any incidents. TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady said: "It's a scandal that so many people experience sexual harassment while just trying to do their jobs.

MSM and WSW often imply a lack of lesbian or gay identity and an absence of community, networks, and relationships in which same-gender pairings mean more than merely sexual behavior.
In fact, for much of the 19th and 20th centuries, a vast majority of the population including doctors and scholars believed that members of the LGBTQ community suffered from mental disorders.
