Welcome to ILGA-Europe's website!
ILGA-Europe is the European Region of the International
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association
On 16 December, ILGA-Europe held an event at the European Parliament in Strasbourg on the role of the EU and the Council of Europe in tackling bullying and discrimination in schools.
ILGA-Europe is very dismayed to learn that one of its member organisations has become the first LGBTI group to be listed as a so-called ‘foreign agent’ under Russia’s notorious legislation. Rakurs, an Archangelsk-based organisation dedicated to LGBTI rights, was recognised as a ‘foreign agent’ by the Russian Ministry of Justice on Monday (15 December 2014).
On 10 December 2014, over 50 representatives from LGBTI organisations from across the EU, national governments, European institutions, civil society and the academic world gathered in Brussels to discuss how to step up the fight against hate crimes.
