(MULTI) (PDF) – Spotlight on the EU and LGBTI equality | Directorate-General for Communication


Everyone in the European Union has the right to be treated equally. 76 % of Europeans polled in 2019 agreed that gay, lesbian or bisexual people should have the same rights as heterosexual people, up from 71 % in 2015. However, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people can face discrimination in many areas of life, for instance when looking for a job or asking for social
security benefits, at school or when they need healthcare. They may also face hate speech and even violence and can feel unsafe in workplaces, schools and public spaces. Since 1999, the EU has had the power to act in cases of discrimination based on sexual orientation. Since then, it has adopted legislation and has taken measures to extend legal and social protection for LGBTI people. In this brochure you can find out what the EU is doing for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people.
