LGBT harassment at work widespread, TUC survey suggests

More than two-thirds of LGBT people in the UK have been sexually harassed at work, a survey suggests.
Of 1,151 LGBT people polled by the Trades Union Congress, 68% said they had experienced harassment, with 42% saying colleagues had made unwanted comments about their sex life.
More than a quarter (27%) said they had received unwelcome sexual advances.
The government said it was planning to shortly consult on how to strengthen existing laws on harassment.
The survey - released on International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia - was conducted by the Trade Union Congress and is believed to be the first major study into LGBT sexual harassment at work in the UK.
