In a very hostile global climate, different actors are coming together and weighing in more actively for LGBT+ rights across Europe. Moldova’s inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity in legislation covering employment, education, provision of goods and services, health, hate crime and hate speech has seen it jump 14 places in the latest edition of the Rainbow Map and Index, published each May by Europe’s leading LGBT+ organisation, ILGA-Europe. The Rainbow Map and Index ranks 49 European countries on their respective legal and policy practices for LGBT+ people, from 0-100 per cent. Moldova’s score, of 39 per cent, is now more than double that of neighbouring Romania, one of the emerging Europe region’s worst performers on just 18 per cent.
