Abstract

Why do politicians represent lesbian, gay, and bisexual citizens’ interests, particularly if they are not LGB themselves? Drawing on an analysis of more than 950,000 parliamentary questions in both Britain and Ireland, Lea Ewe Bönisch finds that, apart from sexual orientation, the political value of social equality and awareness of LGB interests explain such representation.
