LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia

Media Centre

Welcome to ILGA-Europe's online media centre.

If you are a journalist interested in covering an LGBTI story with a European slant, then you have come to the right place.



Based in Brussels, the staff of ILGA-Europe can provide you with the bigger European picture. Our experienced team come from a variety of countries and are very well-placed to give you a sense of the wider trends developing across the continent. 

Here is just a selection of the topics that ILGA-Europe can talk about:

  • Anti-discrimination measures (from the day-day impact to our Equality for All message and long-running campaign for an EU Horizontal Directive)
  • Marriage equality (where it is and is not available in Europe and why)
  • What rights trans people have in each country and what barriers they still have to face
  • Education (why it’s so important to support LGBTI students of all ages)
  • Hate crime and hate speech
  • How LGBTI asylum seekers are treated when they cross Europe’s borders
  • Diversity in the LGBTI movement

It’s easy to keep up-to-date with the latest LGBTI news. Get copies of all ILGA-Europe’s statements by subscribing to our media mailing list.
