This document is a collection of stories by LGBTIQ+ people across Europe, about the violences and injustices they face because of their gender identity and/or sexual orientation. Because of those discrimination, prejudice and violence, many people in Europe continue to hide their sexual orientation and gender identity, including from colleagues, friends, schoolmates and family members. This report is crucial to help understanding that although LGBTIQ+ rights are progressing everywhere, people with non-normative identifications can still be endangered simply by expressing themselves and living freely.
