Our top tips on LGBTQ+ legal rights during lockdown

UK laws have changed a lot in recent years to make sure you are treated fairly, regardless of your sexual orientation or your gender.

In the UK the Equality Act makes it illegal to treat a person unfairly because of their sexual orientation, their sex or because they are transgender. Lots of our other laws have been updated to give LGBTQ+ people the same rights as anyone else. Such as the rules about marriage and civil partnerships, and laws to prevent hate crimes.
