3.6 Million of Us

The Observer reported this week-end on figures published by the Department of Trade and Industry assessing the impact of the new Civil Partnership and the anti-discrimination laws recently passed. The article focuses mostly on those major companies finally smelling the coffee and trying to woo the pink pound but the more important piece of news there has probably to do with the fact that we now have an official and seemingly reliable estimate of the gay and lesbian population in the UK. That's 3.6 million people; roughly 6% of the total population.

And there are no reasons to believe that these figures can not apply to the world population too...

Being a good gay boy and healthily refocusing the story onto my precious little self (*cough*), the news that there are about 1.7M gay men in this country (several hundred thousands of which are porbably located in London) maked me once again wonder what I am doing wrong...

Read the full DTI report (pdf).

  1. Perhaps the right guy for you doesn't live in London, or even the UK?

  2. Hey, Zefrog, please, please, please (begging you on bended knees), proofread your postings!

    "the news that there are about 1.7M gay men in this country (several hundred thousands of which [gulp!] are porbably [no comment] located in London) maked [pardon me?]me once again wonder what I am doing wrong..."

    I appreciate that English is not your mother tongue (nor is it mine) but if the tenor of your postings is anything to go by, you do have the cranial capacity to keep those symptomatic typos and grammatical errors at bay ;-) Try a little harder, will you? Merci!
