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 2014-2019, 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 recruited 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.
