European LGBT survey launched

Besides occasional news reports about the discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people, there is very little comparable data collected across the EU about the everyday experiences of LGBT people with respect of discrimination. In response to this situation, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has launched the first ever online EU-wide survey to establish an accurate picture of the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people (18 years or older) that will try to capture their experiences.

Lancement de l’enquête européenne LGBT

Hormis les reportages occasionnels sur la discrimination à l'égard des personnes lesbiennes, gays, bisexuelles et trans (LGBT), il y a très peu de données comparables recueillies à l'échelle de l'UE sur les expériences quotidiennes de discriminations subies par des personnes LGBT. En réponse à cette situation, l'Agence des droits fondamentaux de l'Union européenne (FRA) a décidé de lancer la première enquête en ligne jamais réalisée à l'échelle de l'UE pour dresser un portait fidèle de la vie et des expériences des personnes lesbiennes, gays, bisexuelles et trans (âgées de 18 ans au moins).

Europaweite LSBT-Umfrage gestartet

Außer gelegentlichen Medienberichten über Diskriminierung von Lesben, Schwulen, Bisexuellen und Transgender-Personen gibt es sehr wenige vergleichbare und EU-weit erhobene Daten über alltägliche Diskriminierungserfahrungen von LSBT-Personen. Daher hat die Agentur der Europäischen Union für Grundrechte (FRA) die bislang erste EU-weite Online-Befragung in Auftrag gegeben, um sich ein genaues Bild der Lebenssituation und Erfahrungswelten von Lesben, Schwulen, Bisexuellen und Transgender-Personen (18 Jahre oder älter) zu verschaffen.

Homophobia and Discrimination on Grounds of Sexual Orientation in the EU Member States Part I – Legal Analysis

Report - comparative
The report examines the situation of homophobia in the 27 EU Member States. It analyses comparatively key legal provisions, relevant judicial data, such as court decisions, and case law in the Member States. In addition, the report identifies and highlights 'good practice' in the form of positive measures and initiatives to overcome underreporting of LGBT (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transsexuals) discrimination, to promote inclusion and to protect transgender persons. FRA 's legal analysis is the first of two reports related to homophobia and discrimination experienced by members of the LGBT community.
