Many gay, lesbian and bisexual persons continue to experience a lack of understanding and the difficulties of social stigma and also sometimes harassment by the heterosexual majority. This publication explores a more respectful perspective within a scientific approach. This should help society in general and particularly people in the services sector – from education, to health, employment, religion, media and leisure services – to appreciate the ‘normal diversity’ of persons who are gay, lesbian or bisexual. It includes papers by two UK psychologists, empirical data on the experiences and aspirations of gay persons in Malta, as well as the Catholic viewpoint, political considerations from the Minister of Education, and a historical account.
