The EU probe the LGBT community
(Blogmensgo, April 13, 2012) The Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) is launching an online survey of lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender persons aged over 18 years and living in a member country EU and Croatia. The results of this anonymous survey will help produce laws and policies more favorable to the LGBT community and with less use of discrimination.
The questionnaire requires, in principle, just ten minutes. You choose the language from a dropdown menu, then come the issues of homophobia, lesbiphobie, transphobia and discrimination in general, but also on the social environment of the respondents and public policy with respect to the LGBT community.
This is the largest operation of such with the public across the EU. Data collection - completely anonymous, let us remember - in all member countries give elements of comparison and qualitative statistics.
Comment. The initiative and its stated goals seem laudable. But was it absolutely necessary to entrust "the technical implementation of the investigation" in Gallup, which has no real basis in some European countries?
