The Chartered Institute of Housing has published advice for housing associations on how to provide services to lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender tenants.
The guide contains advice on how to meet the provisions of the Equality Act 2010, which is intended to simplify discrimination law and place sexuality on an equal footing with other characteristics such as race or gender.
