The EU LGBTIQ* survey by FRA (European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights) has been online since today and we are calling on people to take part.

The survey is aimed at LGBTIQ* people aged 15 and over in 30 countries: the 27 EU Member States plus Albania, Serbia and North Macedonia. It aims to give LGBTIQ* people the opportunity to share their experiences, stories and concerns.

The survey is open until the end of July 2023. The results of the survey will be published in 2024 and will allow the FRA to assess progress since the last survey in 2019.

The 2019 LGBTI survey showed that equality for LGBTIQ* in Europe is far from being achieved. Violence and discrimination against LGBTIQ* people remain high, as does the fear of moving freely as an LGBTIQ* person.

The results were incorporated into the European Commission’s LGBTIQ* Equality Strategy 2020-2025. They contributed to the development of equality policies and initiatives to support and protect LGBTIQ* people across Europe.

FRA encourages the LGBTIQ* community to take part in the survey, express their opinions and share them with family and friends. You can follow the survey on social media using the hashtag #LGBTIQsurvey.

It takes about 20 minutes to complete the survey. Participation in the survey is anonymous. The data is only stored locally on the devices. It will be deleted as soon as the survey is completed.

The statistical consultancies Agilis and Metron Analysis as well as Homo Evolution, an agency for LGBTIQ* communication, are supporting the FRA in conducting the survey.
