No Gays please, we’re CaSE

There is a report available online, published (May 2014) by the Campaign for Science and Engineering with King’s College London, entitled “Improving Diversity in STEM”.
The UK needs thousands of extra scientific personnel, and one problem is that the sector is viewed as being unfriendly towards minorities.
The report runs to 47 pages and gives chapters to disability, ethnicity and gender: but carries not a single mention of ‘gay’, ‘lesbian’, ‘LGBT’ or ‘sexual orientation’.

Not that diverse, then.
