Lesbian, gay and bisexual survey reveals they still fear isolation and discrimination

Redacción

Nearly half (47%) of LGBT people said they had personally felt discriminated against or harassed on the grounds of sexual orientation in the past year, while one in four (26%) had been attacked or threatened with violence in the last five years. Find out the facts in our infographic.

The survey was carried out by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) among more than 93,000 people in the EU and Croatia. The results were released on 17 May to mark International Day against Homophobia.

It shows that members of the LGBT community continue to experience violence and harassment at school, work or other parts of daily life. Other remarkable findings from the survey include 91% saying they heard or read negative comments about LGBT people while they were still in school and 68% of gay men saying they have been the victim of violence in the last year because of their sexual orientation.
