Although the situation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people has improved in recent years in some European countries, prejudice, discrimination and hate-motivated violence persist, even in countries where same-sex relationships are relatively accepted.

This briefing identifies such areas with illustrative case studies and also provides information on homophobic and transphobic hate crimes in these countries.
