Brighton University are beginning a study into the gay community of its neighbouring seaside town of Hastings in an attempt to see if the anti-discrimination legislation in working in the area.

Both the Hastings and Rother Rainbow Alliance and the Hastings and Rother LGBT Wellbeing Group approached the University of Sussex in an attempt to work together and find any areas where discrimination remains in the South Eastern Sussex seaside town.

Funding was later received from a University programme, On Our Doorsteps, a scheme to strength community links. The study hopes to gather information on discrimination with employers and other service providers.



According to Pink Paper, local LGBT activist Charles Neal said about the scheme: “This group aims not only to foreground LGBT equalities work and highlight areas for improvement, but also to create a space for services to work with LGBT communities in a spirit of partnership.

“It will begin with an audit of all public bodies to see how they are meeting their equalities duties and catering for their LGBT populations. Our group is wide-ranging and includes representatives from local authorities, the NHS, prisons and emergency services.”
