Around 140,000 people join FRA LGBTI survey

The EU-wide lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans and intersex (LGBTI) survey 2019 has closed. Around 140,000 LGBTI people of all ages and backgrounds shared their stories with us, topping the 93,000 that answered FRA’s first survey in 2012.

The results of this, the biggest ever LGBTI hate crime and discrimination survey, will be presented in early 2020. They will provide invaluable insights into the everyday experiences of LGBTI people of discrimination, violence and harassment across different areas of life.

They will allow EU institutions and Member States to identify the challenges LGBTI people face. They will also support the development of targeted European and national legal and policy responses that ensure the protection of their fundamental rights.

Thanks to everyone for sharing your story.
