7% of survey complete.

Jake has arranged a high profile, public debate between the main political parties to take place during Gay Pride in July.

The parties will be fielding top representatives to pitch for your vote. And so they should, as the official Government estimate is that there are some 3.5 million gay people in the UK - 6% of the population. That makes us one of the biggest interest groups in the country, so our votes count.

This survey will be completely anonymous and should only take you about 15 minutes to complete. It will be used to challenge the politicians' assumptions about us, and inform the debate. The questions are about how we feel about being gay in society today; civil partnerships; other political issues that are important to us; and the gay rights performance of the parties.

This is a great chance to tell the politicians how we feel about their policies from a gay point of view and, as the world's largest network of gay professionals, Jake is well placed to present your views.

Thank you for taking part in this important survey.
