European LGBT Survey
12 May 2012

Besides occasional news reports about discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people, there is very little comparable data collected across the EU about the everyday experiences of LGBT people with respect of discrimination. In response to this situation, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has launched the first ever online EU-wide survey to establish an accurate picture of the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people (18 years or older) that will try to capture their experiences. The survey covers the 27 EU Member States (including Bulgaria) and Croatia.

As the first EU-wide survey of its kind, the results will support the development of equal treatment policies for LGBT people in the European Union and should set the agenda for years to come. Based on the survey results, national and European policy makers, as well as non-governmental organisations, will be able to better target their advocacy strategies and activities to support LGBT communities to live and express themselves freely in a non-discriminatory environment.

The survey is completely anonymous (no data on the participants and their sessions are logged in any way). The survey is operated by Gallup, a professional survey and consultancy firm.

In order to give weight to the results, the European LGBT Survey counts on the participation of a large and diverse group of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people from each country. Hence, it is vitally important for the success of the survey that it reaches a wide target group through participants emailing the survey, sharing it through social media or simply inviting LGBT friends to take part.

The European LGBT Survey collects your experiences as a lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans person who is over the age of 18 and living in the European Union or Croatia. The survey is conducted by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights. It is completely anonymous and it is available online until the end of June 2012 https://lgbtsurvey.eu/. You can fill in the questionnaire in Bulgarian (or other languages spoken in Europe).

Donating just 20 minutes of your day to fill out the survey will really help to better represent the experiences, opinions and needs of LGBT people. The greater number of participants, the greater the credibility of the results we are counting on tens of thousands of LGBT people across Europe, in the first survey of its kind Can we count on you too?

Make your experience count and take part in the survey! Share on Facebook, on Twitter, and tell your LGBT friends about it!
