This survey is looking for information about LGBT+ inclusion activity within Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust. We are seeking responses from all patients/service users, you do not have to be LGBT+ to respond. All responses are anonymous which means we do not take any identifying information in this survey. 

LGBT+ is used when talking about the following groups:

Lesbian = a woman who has a romantic and/or sexual orientation towards women. Some non-binary people may also identify with this term.

Gay = refers to a man who has a romantic and/or sexual orientation towards men. Also a generic term for lesbian and gay sexuality - some women define themselves as gay rather than lesbian. Some non-binary people may also identify with this term.

Bi/ bisexual = is an umbrella term used to describe a romantic and/or sexual orientation towards more than one gender.

Trans = An umbrella term to describe people whose gender is not the same as, or does not sit comfortably with, the sex they were assigned at birth. For the purpose of this survey we also include non-binary people within this category.

+ = we use this to include other related identities (queer, asexual, intersex etc)
