are drawn from a survey of 700 LGBT+ people,

Of course, guess where the money comes from?
This research was funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship
Programme 2014 – 2020 under REC-AG-2017/REC-RRAC-RACI-AG-2017.
Wonder how much it costs to talk to 700 self-selected interviewees?
