EU survey sparks concern over homophobic abuse

Help

More than a quarter of gay people surveyed in a major EU poll say they have been subjected to attacks or violent threats in the past five years.

The EU's Fundamental Rights Agency surveyed 93,000 people in the EU and Croatia for what it calls the most comprehensive survey of its kind.

The results come on the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
