Luxembourg made a leap into the top 3 European countries that safeguard the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people.
“Rainbow Europe 2019” was released on 13 May by ILGA-Europe, an advocacy group for LGBTI persons. The report “ranks 49 European countries on their respective legal and policy practices for LGBTI people, from 0-100%.”
Malta topped the list with a 90% score, followed by Belgium with a 73% score.
“Luxembourg now occupies third place (70%) – this is a rise of seventeen places (20th position in May 2018), mainly fuelled by the well-modified legal gender recognition law based on self-determination and a comprehensive national action plan.”
Armenia (with a score of 7%), Turkey (5%) and Azerbaijan (3%) were at the bottom of the list.
