Lesbians earn significantly more than their
heterosexual colleagues while homosexual men
earn less, according to a World Bank/IZA
World of Labour study exposing unexpected
links between sexuality and salary.
In Britain, lesbians are paid an average of 8 per
cent more than straight women, with the trend
even more extreme in other Western countries.
In the US, the difference is 20 per cent. Conversely,
homosexual men face a pay penalty, earning
5 per cent less than heterosexual men in the
UK - rising to 9 per cent in Germany and 12 per
cent in Canada.
