Five key facts on the EU and LGBT equality

On 23 June, the UK will make a decision about its future in the European Union.

Ahead of that vote, ILGA-Europe have prepared a factsheet that might be useful for readers both inside and outside the UK. We are certainly not telling people how to vote – that is a decision for the UK! However, we would like to share some information that voters might find relevant.

Here are five key facts on the EU and LGBT equality, ranging from historic court cases, new legislation and the solidarity of the LGBT movement. 

If you are interested in learning more about ILGA-Europe’s own 20-year history of advocacy, you can have a look at our timelines and videos on the equality journey here.
