LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia

European Commission

Commissioner Reding refuses to take leadership or step up EU action on LGBTI issues

Today on 17 May the EU’s Agency for Fundamental Rights presented the results of the largest LGBT Survey of its kind in the world. 93,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people from the 27 EU Member States and Croatia responded and shared their experiences of discrimination, harassment and violence.

A coalition of European equality and anti-discrimination NGOs [1] now calls on the European Commission and the Danish Presidency of the EU to urgently take up this issue.
