Levels of “fear, violence and discrimination remain high” for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people in Europe, according to a survey published Thursday by the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA). Even though more LGBT people feel able to be open about their identities, 43 percent of those asked felt discriminated against in the 12 months before the survey was conducted in 2019. That represents a rise of six points since the FRA carried out a similar survey in 2012. The difference is even starker among transgender respondents, 60 percent of whom felt discriminated against in 2019 as opposed to only 43 percent in 2012. In the largest survey of its kind, FRA questioned 140,000 LGBT people in the 27 EU member states, as well as Britain, Serbia and North Macedonia.
