The Parliamentary Platform for the rights of LGBTI people in Europe uses interparliamentary cooperation to promote full and effective equality for LGBTI people throughout the continent.
It brings together MPs from national and observer delegations to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and its partners for democracy, enabling them to press for change and work together on a wide range of activities to engage governments, inspire new laws and raise awareness among a broader public on these issues. It is coordinated by the Assembly’s General Rapporteur on the rights of LGBTI people.
The creation of the Platform followed the adoption of Assembly Resolution 2417 (2022), which condemned the recent rise in stigmatising, dehumanising attacks against LGBTI people and the backsliding in LGBTI rights seen in some countries.
