Scotland ranked as the best country in Europe for LGBT equality
For the second year running
Scotland has been named the best country in Europe for LGBT equality for the second year running by ILGA Europe (European Region of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association).
The review considers many different criteria including human rights laws, government policies and measures against hate crime.
Scotland met 90.4% of the criteria which was much better than other parts of the UK, with England and Wales on 82.3% and Northern Ireland on just 70.5%.
Angela Crawley, SNP spokesperson for Women, Children and Equalities at Westminster, welcome the news. She said: “The fact that Scotland continues to be rated the best country in Europe for LGBTI equality is welcome recognition for the progress we are making to ensure Scotland is a fair and equal country for everyone.
“The SNP is committed to equality and social justice for all. We were proud to pass Scotland’s progressive equal marriage and hate crime laws, but we know that the job of achieving full equality is not yet done.
