Presenting the findings from the largest-ever LGBT hate crime and discrimination survey

The FRA will present the results of its survey into experiences of hate crime and discrimination by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people on International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia on 17 May 2013 during a conference hosted by the Dutch government in The Hague. 

Around 93,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from all across the EU and Croatia completed the survey, making it the largest and most comprehensive survey of its kind to date.

Participants were also asked to identify where such incidents took place, such as at school, work, when seeking healthcare or in public places.
