LGBTQ+ youth charity Just Like Us is publishing a report later this year that focuses on the experiences of young queer adults in the UK.

According to the charity, the report will cover “everything from their wellbeing and home life, to their experiences in the world of work, as well as taking into account intersections like faith, race and disability.” Just Like Us is encouraging queer 18 to 25-year-olds to lend their voice for a survey, which can be found here.

Their previous report, Growing Up LGBT+, surveyed pupils aged 11 to 18 and more than 500 educators across the UK. The charity found that LGBTQ+ people under 18 are twice as likely to experience loneliness and worry about their mental health and twice as likely to be bullied than their cis-het peers, while one in four faced “daily tensions at home”.
