Parliament strongly condemns homophobic laws and violence in Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 27 Maggio 2012

EU Member states should set an example in fighting homophobia, says Parliament in a resolution adopted by a clear majority on Thursday. MEPs condemn homophobic laws and violence in European countries, and call on EU member states to consider giving access to cohabitation, registered partnerships or marriage to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. European countries, whether or not they are EU member states, and including Russia, Ukraine and Moldova, should ensure that LGBT people are protected from homophobic hate speech and violence, and that same-sex partners enjoy the same respect as the rest of society, says the resolution, tabled by the EPP, S&D, ALDE, Greens/EFA and GUE/NGL groups and adopted with 430 votes in favour, 105 against and 59 abstentions.
