Who We Are

Working for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people in the European Parliament

The Intergroup on LGBTI Rights is an informal forum for Members of the European Parliament who wish to advance and protect the fundamental rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. Members of the Intergroup would usually take a positive stance on LGBTI issues when they draft reports or amendments, when they vote in the Parliament on reports and amendments or when they deal with constituency affairs.

In 2019-2024, the LGBTI Intergroup remains the largest of the European Parliament’s 27 Intergroups with 150+ Members, who are all democratically-elected Members of the European Parliament. All Intergroup Members join on a voluntary basis and new Members can be approached taking into consideration their track record of votes in the present mandate in the European Parliament. Accordingly, the Intergroup is composed of individual members, not political parties.

Its work is led by its Presidents and the day-to-day work is carried out by the Secretariat of the Intergroup.

Our Work

The work of the Intergroup consists in monitoring the work of the European Union; monitoring the situation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people in EU Member States and beyond; and liaising with civil society groups to relay their concerns at the European level.

Our Bureau

The Presidents lead the Intergroup, and represent it both inside and outside of the European Parliament. Co-presidents take daily decisions on the Intergroup’s work, and both Co-presidents and Vice-presidents decide on the Intergroup’s priorities and work programme.
