Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Armenia have the most restrictive lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality laws and policies in Europe, a campaign group says. Azerbaijan scored just 3 percent on a scale where zero indicates gross human rights violations and 100 percent is the greatest degree of equality under the law, the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA-Europe) said. Azerbaijan gained points in just three of the 69 individual categories, which referred to areas such as employment rights and marriage equality. Turkey and Armenia were given 5 and 7 percent, respectively.
