This document is a compilation of all of the data extracted from the 2019 FRA LGBTI II Survey in a project conducted by ILGA-Europe and Transgender Europe. The extraction project ran from August 2021 to August 2022. The purpose of this project was to build on the report by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Right (FRA), A long way to go to LGBTI equality1 , by investigating in more detail different groups of LGBTI people, particularly those exposed to intersectional marginalisation. The statistics used to write this brief come from the 2019 FRA LGBTI II Survey. The survey was open to individuals who were 15 years of age or older who self-identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and/or intersex. The survey was conducted online in 27 EU Member States, the UK, Serbia and North Macedonia between May and July of 2019. The respondents were asked a series of questions about their lived experiences, including information about their experiences of discrimination, harassment, violence, openness about their sexual orientation, gender identity, and sex characteristics, experiences in education and at work, their relationships and parenting, health, housing difficulties, living conditions and socio-economic status. The project sought to disaggregate responses of different groups of LGBTI people for comparison with one another and with the larger respondent population, and to make these data available for advocacy and policy efforts in the EU region.
