Frequently Asked Questions on the LGBT Roadmap report (‘Lunacek report’)

Ulrike Lunacek MEP(Lire cette page en français)

Next week, Members of the European Parliament will vote on the report for an EU roadmap against homophobia (available in 24 languages). The Committee on Civil Liberties supported the report with an overwhelming majority in December, and five political groups stand behind it.

MEPs have received numerous questions about the report, and petitions misrepresent its contents on purpose. Here is a list of frequently asked questions, which will be updated in the run up to the vote on 4 February.

What is the report about? It¬†calls for a new EU action plan to combat homophobia and transphobia, just like the EU already combats¬†discrimination based on gender, disability or ethnicity.¬†EU law should protect all citizens against discrimination, including when they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Living free from threats and discrimination isn’t a ‘personal interest’, but a human right.
