When we stand together we become one Voice - ILGA Europe Campaign

[ILGA-Europe News, Brussels, 9 May 2014] In two weeks’ time, all of us in the European Union are asked to vote for the next European Parliament. Check out our Come Out and Vote video with help from prominent celebrities, politicians and LGBTI who it is here!

These elections are hugely important. These elections will determine our capacity to achieve further progress on LGBTI rights over the next five years in the EU. There is so much more to do to get legal protection against discrimination and violence, so much to do to advance trans and intersex rights, so much to do to strengthen human rights in Europe.

These elections are also about safeguarding all the advances made over nearly two decades at European level. Euro sceptics, far right movement, religious extremists are threatening not just the European Union but also its fundamental principles and values of dignity, equality and human rights for all. The very basis which has allowed all of us to achieve change over the past decades. So now is NOT the time to be complacent. This is why we all need to continue to be engaged, and even to step up our efforts over the next two weeks.
