Gay people are 50% more likely to experience teasing than people who don't dress funny.

A new survey released today has found that gay, bisexual and lesbian people think that everyone from ice cream vendors to Santa Claus treats them less favourably because of their sexuality.

1,600 LGB people took part in the online survey by Duhdotcom, the web polling company's first survey of the poof population.

The results paint a depressing picture of perceived prejudice in Britain.

The survey, entitled Serves You Right-What Did You Expect?, covered employment, political representation, housing, health, education, the police, the criminal justice system, broadcasting, and fashion access.

Nearly one in five lesbian and gay people who responded to the survey said they have experienced bullying, teasing, repetitive Queer Eye jokes, or job loss because of their sexual orientation.

The poll indicates that lesbian and gay people are 50% more likely to experience teasing than those who date the opposite sex.

In related findings: Black people think that everyone suspects them of being good dancers, Latinos think that other people wish they'd speak English, and Jews think Gentiles don't get their jokes.
