Gay women bankers less likely to be "out"

The Scotsman carries a report by recruitment firm The Blomfield Group that whilst diversity is increasing in the City, that does not really extend to gay people, specially women, who are generally felt to have to struggle anyway in a largely white heterosexual male environment - the findings are that they are "three times more likely than men not to disclose their sexuality". A number of high-profile lawsuits about alleged discrimination in the financial services industry is not helpful either.
