LGBTQ+ RIGHTS IN ITALY
In the rainbow map of ILGA and FRA, out of 49 countries examined, Italy is at 35th place. In 2020, in 49% of the states surveyed, ILGA records that there are no positive changes.
Meanwhile, the COVID-19 emergency has hit the most vulnerable sections of the population and has been used by some governments as an alibi to accelerate their plans against human rights.
76% of European citizens agree that LGBTQ+ people should have the same rights as heterosexuals, although the average varies widely between different states. In Italy, only 68% of the Italians interviewed said they were in favour of this, remaining well below the European average.
