European Commission releases toolkit to support LGBTI community

71% of Europeans believe that Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people should have the same rights as heterosexual people (Eurobarometer survey). Nevertheless, 47% of LGBTI people reported that they had been discriminated against or harassed in the year preceding a survey carried out by the European Fundamental Rights Agency. Discrimination has no place in our society. The European Commission fights discrimination against LGBTI people with legal and policy measures. By supporting awareness-raising activities the Commission is showing there is no place for hate and prejudice and is working for the inclusion of LGBTI people in society as equals.

This social media toolkit for EC Representations and stakeholders is designed to support awareness-raising activities across the EU. It is part of the Commission’s ‘List of actions by the Commission to advance LGBTI equality’, adopted in December 2015.

Objective of this social media toolkit:

  • Provide resources that you as a stakeholder can use to combat discrimination and increase the social acceptance of LGBTI people
  • Promote positive messages about LGBTI equality and increase the number of ‘straight allies’ and multipliers in the promotion of LGBTI equality in the EU.
