LGBT votes in 2009-2014: EU Roadmap against homophobia (5/5)
During the 2009-2014 legislature, MEPs voted on LGBT issues over 250 times. In the run-up to the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia on 17 May, we’ll publish a series of 6 infographics summarising political groups’ votes on key LGBT issues.
In February 2014, the European Parliament adopted the ‘Lunacek Report’ on a roadmap against homophobia with a large majority (394 in favour, 176 against). The report was widely commented in the European press.
It was jointly prepared by all 5 mainstream political groups (EPP, S&D, ALDE, Greens/EFA and GUE/NGL), and called on the European Commission to adopt a soft policy for LGBT equality, just like it did on the grounds of gender or disability.
Percentages indicate MEPs who supported the measure out of MEPs taking part in the vote. Nominal votes are publicly available on VoteWatch. Numbers were adjusted to reflect vote corrections.
