Besides occasional news reports about discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI+) people, there is very little comparable data collected across the EU about the everyday experiences of LGBTI+ people with respect to discrimination.
To support equal treatment legislation and policy-making, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has launched an EU-wide LGBTI+ survey, with a questionnaire that is available online and awaits the opinions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people over the age of 15 living in the European Union, N. Macedonia or Serbia.
Participation in the survey is very important. All answers will be processed in an anonymous way ensuring that it will not be possible for anyone to identify your answers when the results are presented.
Based on the survey results, national and European policymakers, as well as non-governmental or civil society organisations, will be able to better target their advocacy strategies and activities to support the LGBTI+ community to live and express themselves freely without discrimination.
In order to give weight to the results, the European LGBTI+ Survey counts on the participation of a large and diverse group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and Intersex people from each country. This is the second wave of an EU-wide effort to collect LGBTI+ experiences in the framework of the ever largest survey made in this field.
The questions will take up to around 20 minutes to answer and answers are completely anonymous. Take part in the survey here.
The survey is being commissioned by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). The implementation is done by Agilis, a statistical consultancy firm and the communication by Homo Evolution, an organisation dedicated to communication for the LGBTI+ community.
