Why this project?

Faith-based protests about same-sex education and the controversial ‘Gay Cake’ case highlight how religious freedoms and sexual orientation rights challenge pluralist tolerance. Faith-based organisations and religious care workers routinely provide care to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans+ people, especially in older age care homes.  Anecdotal reports suggest religious views underpin the attitudes of those care-workers who are uncomfortable caring for LGBT+ people, affecting the quality of that care. This project will build a collaborative research network which sets a research agenda for a research grant application which will explore the intersection of religion, sexual orientation and gender identity in older care provision.
