Report on the study’s results of the effectiveness of legal protection against crimes based on sexual orientation and gender identity intolerance in the context of Ukrainian legislation and law enforcement practice
This publication presents information that reflects the social, legal and political situation of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) people in Ukraine in 2020. It contains data and analyses of the issues related to LGBT rights and interests in legislation, public and political life, and public opinion, and provides examples of discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation or gender identity and more.
Due to the coronavirus epidemic and related quarantine restrictions, activity of LGBT organizations have largely moved to the Internet. Restrictions on mass events and personal meetings have reduced documented cases of LGBT rights violations, but far-right and traditionalist groups did not reduce, but rather increased, their aggression against those physical LGBT events which still occur in Ukrainian cities.
