Summary: Sexual Orientation and Rural and Environment
The Scottish Government has limited information on the experiences of gay, lesbian and bisexual people in rural Scotland and in relation to the environment.
- Due to the small number of individuals identifying as gay/lesbian/bisexual/other sexual orientation in the Scottish Household Survey, data for 2015 and 2016 have been combined to reach an adequate sample size.
- Over the 2015 and 2016 period, there was little difference in the proportion of respondents who identified as gay/lesbian/bisexual/other and the proportion of respondents who identified as heterosexual who visited the outdoors once a week or more (45% and 49% respectively).
