This publication is the outcome of a fruitful and constructive partnership between ILGA-Europe and IGLYO,
the International Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Youth and Student Organization.
Initiated by Birgit Hardt, who put social inclusion of young LGBT people on our agendas and brought our two
organisations together, this research project was enriched by the ongoing contribution of numerous people.
The members of the research steering team, Peter Dankmeijer, Kim Smouter and Patricia Prendiville,
provided valuable guidance on the methodology and the thinking on the issue of social exclusion of LGBT
youth, as well as important feedback on drafts of this report.
Many people have contributed their time to help us produce this publication in an inclusive fashion by
translating the questionnaires sent to young people in different languages: Roman Kuhar, Greg Czarnecki,
Chris Swart, Cristian Nita, Linda Elstad, Andreas Nilsson, Jelena Chelebic, Katerina Nedbalkova, Tiago
Lopes, Anna Kirey, Anke Bienwald, Eddy, Notty and Ana, Fabio Saccá and Maxence de Barros. Many others
have provided assistance in making sure that the questionnaires would reach young people by sharing
their technical skills and resources, and in helping the research team process the data collected (Attila
Bartha, Katherine Fobear, Beverley Craig, as well as those behind the websites,, and ). We also thank Nate Nicholson, James Adutt and Chris Christiaansz
Ungerer who proofread the report.
Our special thanks go to all the young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people who shared their
thoughts and experiences with us. Their testimonies are the heart of this publication, and testify to the
need of combating discrimination and exclusion of young LGBT people.
Finally, we wish to thank the author, Judit Takács, not only for the high quality of this report, but also for
her genuine enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to giving a voice to young people. We believe that
this publication will make an important contribution to the work of our two organisations towards greater
social inclusion of young LGBT people.
