The European LGBT Survey

I noticed on the web site of the European Parliament’s Intergroup on LGBT Rights an item about the fact that members of the European Parliament have welcomed a new survey into the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the European Union and Croatia.

The survey asks a range of questions about LGBT people’s experiences including:

  • Personal circumstances
  • Public perceptions and responses to homophobia and/or transphobia
  • Discrimination
  • Rights awareness
  • Safe environment
  • Violence and harassment
  • The social context of being an LGBT person

The survey has been drawn up on behalf of the the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) in order to gather data in support of equal treatment legislation and policy making.

I’ve just filled in my response. If you are an LGBT person living in the EU (or Croatia), I urge you to do the same.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
