Rainbow Map of Europe - 2013

The ILGA Europe (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association) have recently published a Rainbow Map of Europe. This map shows the state of equality for LGBT people across all of Europe. It identifies and focuses on areas such as anti-discrimination laws, legal recognition of same-sex couples and the inclusion of the grounds of sexual orientation.

The 2013 review found that degrading, offensive and defamatory language is one of the most common trends across the continent.
While some countries are scoring high on the Rainbow Map because they have good laws, the situation on the ground often is very different. Even in countries with the most advanced laws and policies, there is a surprisingly high percentage of LGBTI people who are adjusting their behaviours on a daily basis because they fear violence and harassment when in public

Among the EU member states causing major concern are Hungary and Greece.
