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 for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people over the age of 15 living in the European Union, N. Macedonia, and Serbia.
Based on the survey results, national and European policy makers 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 any discrimination.
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. 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.
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.
