Countries across Europe need to do more to protect the rights of LGBTI people, according to a new index, which says law and policy advances have slowed down across the region. The ‘Rainbow Europe’ index, released today by advocacy group ILGA-Europe, ranks 49 countries in the region on their LGBTI equality laws and policies, giving them a score between 0% (gross violations of human rights, discrimination) and 100% (respect for human rights, full equality).
IDAHOTB, or International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, is one of the biggest day for LGBTI rights in the world. Across the globe, people will be coming together to commemorate, campaign and celebrate on 17 May. The theme this year is Alliances for Solidarity. Read more on the official website.
