EU LGBTI Strategy
Brussels, 18 June 2019
Strong fundamental rights framework must be part of the next strategic agenda for the EU
Majority of EU member states clearly speak out that the EU needs to stand firm regarding the protection of the rights of LGBTI people.
ILGA-Europe is disappointed that the EU failed to deliver an ambitious LGBTI equality strategy.
MEPs adopted the initiative report prepared by Rapporteur Maria Noichl (S&D, DE) at a plenary session in Strasbourg.
ILGA-Europe and the European Women's Lobby have written an open letter to First Vice President Frans Timmermans urging him to confirm his support for the EU LGBTI Strategy and the EU Strategy for Equality between Women and Men.
