ILGA-EUROPE’S ANNUAL REVIEW OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS SITUATION OF LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, TRANS AND INTERSEX PEOPLE COVERING EVENTS THAT OCCURRED IN EUROPE AND CENTRAL ASIA BETWEEN JANUARY-DECEMBER 2022.
The Annual Review is ILGA-Europe’s annual publication documenting legal, political and social developments in 54 countries and 4 European institutions over the past calendar year. It is a unique report tracking key positive and negative trends in relation to LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia.
This year’s Review finds that finds that 2022 was the most violent year for LGBTI people across the region in the past decade, both through planned, ferocious attacks and through suicides in the wake of rising and widespread hate speech from politicians, religious leaders, right-wing organisations and media pundits.

In Slovakia’s chapter we reported “On 12 October, two young men Matúš Horváth and Juraj Vankulič…” We believe this is incorrect, as it has been widely reported elsewhere that Juraj Vankulič identified as non-binary. Matúš Horváth was openly bisexual.
Also in Slovakia’s chapter we wrote “In late October, LGBTI NGOs launched the’ Ide ám o život/ ‘It’s About Our Life’ initiative…”. There is a typo error in the name of the initiative. The correct name is “Ide nám o život”.
