BBC says it needs more lesbians

The Daily Mail reports:

The BBC has more than 400 transgender staff, a confidential internal survey has revealed.

The figure represents more than one in 50 of the workforce – about four times higher than the proportion in the population at large.

That is an astonishingly high figure.

Using personal information about staff that ‘only a couple of people would ever know’, Mr Ogungbesan also revealed that 11 per cent of BBC employees were lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. 

But he said he did not regard the BBC as diverse enough, claiming more lesbians were needed.

I suspect the most under-represented group within the BBC isn’t lesbians but Conservative supporters. The diversity quotas brigade never seem to want political diversity.
