In 2014, Cambridge City and South Cambs District Councils took the unprecedented step to ask the question: what does it mean to be LGBTQ in Cambridgeshire? You can read the result here, it is the Needs Assessment report they asked us to compile. Surveys, personal interviews, focus groups, we asked all the questions: is it safe to walk out at night where you live? How confident are you talking to your GP? Are there enough support groups? We identified six trends there, and they inform all our choices and campaigns.
