The UK has seen a rise of more than 50 percent in the number of same-sex couple families since 2015.
New data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reveals that four years ago there were 152,000 same-sex couple families living in the UK compared to 232,000 last year, an increase of 53.2 percent.
Speaking to the BBC, Joe Nellis, communications coordinator for the LGBT Foundation, said: “It is positive to see that more same-sex couples feel confident and able to disclose their relationship and household status.
“We have made significant developments in LGBT equality legislation, including marriage equality in England, Wales and Scotland, which has given more LGBT people the confidence to live their lives openly.
“It is important to remember that if we’re not counted, we don’t count.”
