The discrimination against LGBTI people has been more real than ever in 2020 and in 2021. Several petitions received concern cases like LGBTI-free zones in Poland or the attacks on LGBTI-rights in Hungary. The hearing also dealt with the legal difficulties that rainbow families encounter in their daily lives in Member States, de facto or de jure, and assess the situation relating to the mutual recognition of parenthood and marriages, as well as questions of child custody. This event was a step towards more action needed from a European perspective, following the publication of the LGBTIQ Equality strategy.
