The Intergroup uses specific tools in its work, including:

  • Work with members of the Intergroup on reports, resolutions or amendments to include LGBTI rights in formal EU texts;
  • Formally ask parliamentary questions, which can be written or oral (during a plenary), and addressed to the European Commission, the President of the European Commission, or to the European Council;
  • Organise internal or public meetings on specific issues, to raise awareness among MEPs and facilitate exchanges of views between MEPs, experts and civil society;
  • Write open or private letters to authorities in EU institutions, in Member States, or in the countries the EU works with (‘third countries’) to manifest MEPs’ position on a certain topic;
  • Attend Pride marches and conferences across Europe to raise awareness of the event at the local and national levels, listen to the concerns of local communities, and ensure that authorities provide sound and secure surroundings for the events.
