Despite the coronavirus pandemic, just under three in 10 LGBT+ people (28 per cent) would consider hooking-up with someone at the moment, according to a report by dedicated LGBT+ market research specialists Queer Voices Heard.
The report reveals that over 70% of those surveyed were concerned about the coronavirus’ impact on their lives. A third were worried that existing mental health conditions would mean that the pandemic would have a negative impact on their physical health.
The survey concludes: “At a time where the UK government continues to call for stringent social distancing and are exploring stronger ways to enforce this, it’s clear more needs to be done to communicate the importance of social distancing measures to support the efforts of flattening the curve.”
Responding to the findings, Queer Voices Heard co-founder Stu Hosker is reported by Pink News as saying: “When mental health and social isolation already disproportionately affects our community than the general population, it’s vital that we listen to the voices in our community who are most vulnerable - physically, mentally, and socially - and address how we keep their best interests in mind during this unprecedented health emergency.”
