As we start a week of hearings of the Commissioners-designate, ILGA-Europe is urging all incoming Commissioners and President Ursula von der Leyen to support the introduction and implementation of comprehensive and robust LGBTI equality strategy.
Welcoming the Eurobarometer, which reports positive findings on the acceptance of LGBTI people, ILGA-Europe says they need to be taken into account with the rise of anti-LGBTI hate speech and attacks on the fundamental rights of LGBTI people.
As a high-level conference on LGBTI equality gets underway in Brussels, we find ourselves at a critical crossroads for the European project, says ILGA-Europe's Communications Director Brian Finnegan
Europe is at a dangerous crossroads and that’s why this is a critical time for the Commission to adopt a comprehensive LGBTI strategy over the next five years.
ILGA-Europe congratulate Ursula von der Leyen on being the first woman ever elected president of the European Commission – a historic step forward for gender equality in Europe.
