A new survey by the Trades Union Congress has revealed that more than two-thirds of LGBT people in the UK have been sexually harassed at work.
The survey polled 1,151, with 68% saying they had experienced harassment and 42% reporting that they had received unwanted comments about their sex life from a colleague.
Twenty-seven percent said they had received unwelcome sexual advances.
Released on International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia, the survey is thought to be the UK’s first ever significant study into LGBT sexual harassment at work.
Commenting on the statistics, a Government Equalities Office spokesperson said: "It is appalling LGBT people are suffering this harassment. Workplaces should be safe, supportive environments for everybody.
"The government will consult shortly on how we can strengthen and clarify existing laws on third-party harassment, as well as making sure employers fully understand their legal responsibility to protect their staff.”
