From UCU’s nation Equality and Participation Unit:
The EU Fundamental Rights Agency is undertaking a survey to look at experiences of LGBT+ people across Europe.
The survey takes around 20 minutes to complete and you cannot skip questions.
Some of the questions that are asked vary from UCU practice / policy for expressing LGBT+ identities and experiences. There is a free text box at the end of the survey should you want to leave any comment about your experience that may not have been fully reflected in the survey.
One thing to be aware of is that in the drop down boxes the United Kingdom does not appear under U and is located somewhere near the middle of European countries.
The survey is looking for responses from anyone who considers themselves to be LGBTI, who is aged 15 years and above and lives in the European Union, Serbia or North Macedonia as candidate countries.
The survey can be found on www.lgbtisurvey.eu
The survey asks respondents about their experiences of discrimination and hate crime or harassment, as well as about their daily lives, problems and challenges they face in having their rights respected, protected and promoted. The results will feed into the 2020 assessment by the European Commission of how its List of Actions is being implemented. In this way, the data can be used to assess the effectiveness of policies and measures to combat discrimination and victimisation. They will also help promote LGBTI participation in society. The results will allow for comparisons and trends between the first and second survey. It should reveal whether the situation for LGBTI people is improving – or not – across the European Union. This constitutes the 2nd wave of the European survey of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, and also non-binary and other gender non-conforming people.
Your answers are welcomed until 7 July 2019
