69.7% of interviewed local public officials in Albania reveal they have never offered a service to an LGBT person. The study “Perceptions of local institutions on LGBT friendly services” conducted by PINK Embassy in 6 municipalities across the country reveals interesting data on perceptions of local officials. Study shows that while the majority of them would easily offer services to the community, just like any other citizen, low support is shown for family rights such as marriage or adoption. A large majority of officials have received no trainings or professional information on LGBTI rights.
