EU Council Adopted Conclusions on Protection of LGBT Rights

EU member states adopted the conclusions on the protection of LGBT and women's rights and gender equality on June 20. This way, the member states for the first time ever agreed and obliged themselves to work together against all forms of LGBT discrimination and work towards achieving equality. The conclusions proscribed close cooperation with the European Commission in order to enforce the LGBT Action List and achieve the equality of LGBT community. 

The conclusions entail annual reports (including recommendations) on the LGBT position in the member states by the European Commission. Adoption of this important document was preceded by the Orlando shooting and failed attempt to adopt the European Agreement on LGBT rights.
