FRA addresses Athens Gay Pride event

On 8 June, a FRA representative addressed a large open meeting of thousands of LGBT people and supporters of LGBT equality at the Athens Pride event in Greece.

He spoke about the findings of FRA’s EU LGBT survey and the need to promote and protect fundamental rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people so they too can live their lives with dignity. The event has been organised in Athens, Greece for 10 years now and represents a positive stand against discrimination and violence towards LGBT people.
