February 4, 2014 - Citizens & Consumers

Jennifer Baker is joined by Paolo Alberti, spokesperson for the S&D Group, to discuss the vote on a Roadmap for LGBT rights.

Parliament will vote on the Lunacek Report, officially known as ”EU Roadmap against homophobia and discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity” in plenary session on Tuesday 4 February. This report calls for a new EU action plan to combat homophobia and transphobia. “Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are often victims of violence and discrimination. In order to solve this problem we need to move from words to actions“, claims Paolo Alberti, spokesperson for the S&D Group.
