Our Tools

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 High Representative/Vice-President 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 LGBTI needs at local and national levels, liaise with local activists and ensure that authorities provide sound and secure surroundings for the events.
