The LGBTIQ+ community has slowly but steadily been recognized and provided rights by legal institutions within Australia since the 1970s. The LGTIQ+ community is a minority population group that covers a spectrum of genders, sexualities, and relationships. How they identify themselves depends upon a plethora of socioeconomic and demographic factors. By 2016, about three percent of the adult population identified as being homosexual or bisexual. A little over two percent reported themselves as belonging to other sexual orientations or not being sure.
A large number of male LGBTIQ+ adults in Tasmania fell within the under 25 age group in 2020. Notably, the number in monogamous relationships has seen a slight bi-yearly drop since 2014, with more male adults favoring regular but casual partnerships and meeting potential partners via either a mobile app or the internet.
Acceptance and comfort in the workplace
In a 2020 survey about LGBTIQ+ adults and the workplace, just under half said they were out to everyone else within their workplace and just over half said that they felt accepted and confident at work. Even more respondents said they felt safe and accepted as part of their workplace teams. A similar amount said they would feel willing to bring a partner to a work-related event.
