Which European countries are best for LGBT rights recognition?
If you’re planning a trip or move to Europe and want to take into consideration the LGBT rights landscape of your destination, it can be tricky because no two countries recognize LGBT rights in quite the same way.
Fortunately, a leading rights group, ILGA Europe, has just released a series of infographics covering 49 European nations. Below are the top seven countries in reverse order.
They are assessed on criteria like same-sex partnership recognition, gender identity protections and LGBT asylum provisions. These infographics are based on the in-depth annual review ILGA Europe conducts, and you can find that here.
France’s LGBT community has endured a concerted attack over the past few months. The legalization of marriage equality and same-sex adoption rights has resulted in a number of violent attacks.
Despite this, France has a solid foundation of LGBT discrimination protections and it is hoped that action on marriage equality will signal a wider shift in LGBT friendly policies such as gender recognition.
