Dear FOI Team,

I write to request information on the number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals who made a homeless application as legally homeless and/or being threatened with homelessness between January 2018 and April 2022.

As part of this request, I would like the information to be broken down into the following:
