Lately, we heard a lot about marriage equality debate in France and the large public demonstrations by the opponents, or the regressive developments in Russia and Ukraine with the introduction of bans on ‘homosexual propaganda’ and further repression against the LGBTI movement.
Is marriage equality the only criteria we should use to measure equality of LGBTI people in a society? Which European country is a champion of LGBTI equality and which countries are in the ‘red zone’? What are the main European trends: both in terms of achievements and shortcomings? Are the European institutions doing enough? Is Europe moving forward or taking steps back?
The Rainbow Europe package will provide the answers to all the above mentioned questions. It will give an overall picture of the current state of play of the human rights of LGBTI people in Europe.
