ILGA Europe have published their latest Rainbow Europe map and rankings, with the UK once again dropping in the ratings and now sitting at 17th place in the list of 49 countries, having been at the top just 8 years before in 2015.
Below are some member responses to the news:
The UK has fallen three further places in @ILGAEurope's annual ranking of LGBTQ+ rights across Europe.
In 2015, the UK was top of the ILGA rankings – a position it had held for four consecutive years. In 2023 the UK is at number 17, falling from number 14 in 2022.

We work with thousands of LGBT+ abuse & violence survivors every year.
Leni Morris, Galop CEO, spoke to @PinkNews on why we're not surprised the UK is 17th on the #RainbowEuropeMap: "We're seeing a system in this country which is failing LGBT+ people."
