According to figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), in 2015, 1.7 per cent of the UK population identified themselves as lesbian, gay or bisexual.

Men were more likely to do so than women, two per cent to 1.5 per cent, as were younger demographics.

Those aged 16 to 24 were most likely to identify as LGB, with 3.3 per cent self-identifying as such.

London was the LGB capital of the country with 2.6 per cent identifying as such.
