BECAUSE OF WHO I AM: HOMOPHOBIA, TRANSPHOBIA AND HATE CRIMES IN EUROPE

Although the situation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people has improved in recent years in some European countries, prejudice, discrimination and hate-motivated violence persist, even in countries where same-sex relationships are relatively accepted. In order to effectively tackle hate crimes on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity, authorities need to make improvements in several areas. This briefing identifies such areas with illustrative case studies and also provides information on homophobic and transphobic hate crimes in these countries.
