Gay numbers are misinterpreted

I'm afraid Fionola Meredith (DebateNI, January 23) has her figures wrong when she says that statistically there should be five or six gay MLAs in Stormont.

According to the Government's own statistics, LGBTs comprise only 1.6% of the population, so why is there such a campaign to continually push their rights above everyone else's by misinterpreting their numbers?

I don't read or hear of similar campaigns for other groups of greater numbers.
