We want to hear from you: EU LGBTIQ survey is now open!

Let's get loud - EU LGBTIQ survey. Take the survey.
Are you lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex or queer (LGBTIQ) living in Europe? We want to hear from you! The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) launches today its EU-wide survey to capture the experiences, views and concerns of LGBTIQ people. The findings will drive policies to further protect and promote LGBTIQ people’s rights.

The survey is open to LGBTIQ people aged 15 and above in 30 countries: the 27 EU Member States plus Albania, Serbia and North Macedonia. It aims to give LGBTIQ people the chance to share their experiences, stories and concerns.

The survey is open until the end of July 2023. The results of the survey will be published in 2024 and will allow FRA to assess progress since the last survey conducted in 2019.

The 2019 LGBTI survey showed that there is still a long way to go for LGBTI equality in Europe. Violence and discrimination against LGBTI people remain high, so does fear of moving around freely as a LGBTI person.

The findings helped shape the European Commission’s LGBTIQ Equality Strategy 2020-2025. They contributed to the development of equal treatment policies and initiatives to support and protect LGBTIQ people across Europe.

FRA encourages the LGBTIQ community to take part, have their say, and share it widely among family and friends. You can follow the survey on social media using the hashtag #LGBTIQsurvey.

The survey only takes 20 minutes to complete. Taking part is anonymous. Data is only stored locally on devices. They are deleted once the survey is completed.

Agilis and Metron Analysis, statistical consultancies, along with Homo Evolution, an LGBTIQ communication agency, support FRA in carrying out the survey.
