Yesterday, 12 November 2020, EU Vice-President Jourova and Commissioner for Equality, Helena Dalli launched the first EU LGBTIQ Strategy 2020–2025, marking a significant step forward for the European Commission in protecting and ensuring LGBTI rights. We’ve read through it, and here’s an easy-read version.
EU LGBTI Strategy
The publication today of a five-year EU LGBTIQ Equality Strategy marks a qualitative shift from the European Commission towards playing its full role to defend and protect LGBTI rights in times of real backlash, says Europe’s largest LGBTI umbrella organisation, ILGA-Europe.
There has been little progress in the lived experience of LGBTI people in Europe over the past seven years.
A resolution adopted by the European Parliament today makes a strong call across the European Union.
Eurobarometer reports positive findings on the acceptance of LGBTI people, but they need to be taken into account with the rise of anti-LGBTI hate speech and attacks on the fundamental rights of LGBTI people.
As a high-level conference on LGBTI equality gets underway in Brussels, we find ourselves at a critical crossroads for the European project, says ILGA-Europe's Communications Director Brian Finnegan
Europe is at a dangerous crossroads and that’s why this is a critical time for the Commission to adopt a comprehensive LGBTI strategy over the next five years.
ILGA-Europe congratulate Ursula von der Leyen on being the first woman ever elected president of the European Commission – a historic step forward for gender equality in Europe.
