Stronger rights for LGBTI people
We believe everyone has equal rights to live their lives how they choose, free from discrimination. We want the Commission to develop a comprehensive European response to the fundamental rights issues faced by LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) people. An EU strategy or roadmap is needed to tackle homophobia and all other forms of discrimination suffered by people because of their sexual orientation and gender identity. We have consistently campaigned to make sure this stays at the top of the agenda and have led calls for an EU response, with backing from the Parliament and EU countries.
