As a lesbian living in London, myself and my partner are often not faced with much discrimination because of our sexuality. Although there are plenty of people who do not support the LGBT community, for the most part people will not say anything or just give us a strange glare as we walk down the street holding hands. However, a couple of years ago when myself and my partner were using public transport, a man (who I can only guess from his appearance was a Hindu) hit us both in the face as we kissed, then left. I am also very aware that there is discrimination towards gay and bisexual men when it comes to donating blood as it states that a man who has had sex with another man, will not be able to give blood because of HIV/Aids.
