Liberals stand proud with LGBTQIA+ community

On 17 May, ALDE Party joined the global community in observing International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT) in proud solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community.

Despite gains in recent years, the fight for LGBTQIA+ equality is far from over. In a 2019 survey, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights found that discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation, gender identity/expression and sex characteristics was increasing in the EU.

Earlier this year, we spearheaded grassroots support for Renew Europe’s resolution to declare the European Union a LGBTI Freedom Zone. The resolution was passed by the European Parliament, but our fight for equality doesn’t stop there! As Europe’s liberals, we are continually striving for a more open and tolerant society, where all people are free to live and love without discrimination or violence because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Catch up these highlights from liberal leaders and some of our member parties marking IDAHOBIT virtually this year.
