Survey on socio-economic dimensions of LGBTI exclusion in the Western Balkans kicks off

Starting from February 1st lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, queer people living in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia can fill in the questionnaire which will reveal the issues and challenges faced by LGBTI people due to their sexual orientation and gender identity and expression, including perceptions of rights, violence, harassment and other.

This online survey is the biggest of its kind and was initially conducted in 2012 in all European Union countries including Croatia (then a candidate country). 93.000 people responded to the survey which unfortunately did not include the Western Balkans.

Meanwhile, the National Democratic Institute’s Regional Poll conducted in 2015, in the other 6 countries, of the region will provide opportunities for comparison.

The research is supported by the World Bank and is being implemented by IPSOS Strategic Marketing, the Williams Institute UCLA and ERA – LGBTI Equal Rights Association for the Western Balkans and Turkey.

Subversive Front, as a founding and active member of ERA, would like to invite all the members of the LGBTI community in Macedonia to fill in the questionnaire by clicking on the following link, and distribute it to the community and their networks:
