The ILGA-RIWI Global Attitudes Survey on Sexual, Gender and Sex Minorities, in partnership with Viacom, Logo and SAGE is a year-on-year survey to gather and assess credible data on public attitudes to particular issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics.
The survey manages to collect answers from netizens from across the globe, reaching also environments highly hostile to our communities: it results in the largest investigation of attitudes towards sexual, gender and sex minorities around the world ever conducted.
Thanks to this survey, for the first time the world has been provided with actual verifiable evidence-based data, rather than anecdotal evidence on these attitudes, that can assist advocates, researchers and policy-makers in their work.
Data included in this report shows that knowing someone in sexual and gender minorities’ communities has significant positive effect on attitudes towards them.
