The City of London is not, strictly speaking a London borough. There has been little change to the City’s boundaries since the middle ages, when the area was the full extent of London. With a small population there are only an estimated 480 LGBT people living within the City of London, and 72 same-sex households according to the 2001 census.
The historic City of London is governed by the City of London Corporation, a non-partisan body made up of elected representatives from across the region.
The member of parliament for the area is Mark Field, Conservative, serving the Cities of London and Westminster constituency.
The City of London Corporation operates its own Police force for the square mile. There is a group within the City of London Police called Chorus, a diversity body promoting equality on issues of sexual orientation across the Force.
City and Hackney NHS is the primary care trust covering the City of London.
