Almost half of London's LGBT+ community have felt threatened in the last year because of their sexuality, according to a new survey.
The research was commissioned by organisers of next month's Pride in London March, described as the third biggest event in the capital's calendar after the marathon and New Year's Eve fireworks.
Key findings include 44% of LGBT+ Londoners who responded have felt threatened by others in the last year and 36% have been verbally abused.
The research also concludes the majority of straight people care more about animal rights than gender equality or tolerance of people with different sexual identities.
The survey coincides with the launch of a series of videos called 'Pride Matters' featuring a new recording of Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
