  • Stonewall LGBT Charity - www.stonewall.org.uk
  • Stonewall was founded in 1989 by a small group of women and men who had been active in the struggle against  Section 28 of the Local Government Act. Section 28 was an offensive piece of legislation designed to prevent the so-called 'promotion' of homosexuality in schools; as well as stigmatising gay people it also galvanised the gay community. The aim from the outset was to create a professional lobbying group that would prevent such attacks on lesbians, gay men and bisexuals from ever occurring again. Stonewall has subsequently put the case for equality on the mainstream political agenda by winning support within all the main political parties and now has offices in England, Scotland and Wales. Stonewall is renowned for its campaigning and lobbying.  Some major successes include helping achieve the equalisation of the age of consent, lifting the ban on lesbians and gay men serving in the military, securing legislation allowing same-sex couples to adopt and the repeal of Section 28. More recently Stonewall has helped secure civil partnerships and ensured the recent Equality Act protected lesbians and gay men in terms of goods and services. Stonewall has an almost unique framework for a campaigning organisation in that individual stakeholders and donors are not ‘members’. This was part of the organisation’s original vision, in order to protect our capacity to be nimble both politically and operationally. Our Chief Executive has said: “We are not a ‘democratic’ organisation, in that we would never be satisfied to think that a position we took was based on the views of 51% of gay people, while 49% did not agree. We seek to develop all our work, and policy positions where appropriate, by building as wide a consensus as possible among lesbian, gay and bisexual people.” Stonewall also works with a whole range of agencies to address the needs of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals in the wider community. Our Diversity Champions programme offers advice and support to over 600 organisations including IBM, Barclays, Barnardos, DCLG and the Royal Navy. Stonewall's Education for All campaign, launched in January 2005, helps tackle homophobia and homophobic bullying in schools and works with a wide coalition of groups. More recently Stonewall has formed partnerships with organisations outside Parliament to ensure the rights and needs of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals are addressed in the wider community. Stonewall has also raised public awareness in terms of civil partnership, through our Get Hitched guide, and on the changes to the employment regulations relating to sexual orientation through guides for both employers and employees. In addition Stonewall promotes new research on issues such as hate crime, lesbian health and homophobic bullying in schools. Our offices in Scotland and Wales further our work across a range of activities and work alongside local projects to develop LGB communities. On 23 September 2003 we were granted charitable status (Charity Registration Number 1101255). Alongside this expansion, our highly professional staff team has grown and is sustained by a committed band of dedicated volunteers and thousands of individuals the length and breadth of the UK. Stonewall receives no public funding and raises all its money itself in a range of ways including donations,  sponsorship, and fundraising events. Stonewall is a member of the Equality and Diversity Forum, a network of national organisations committed to progress on age, disability, gender, race, religion and belief, and sexual orientation issues. ______________________________________ The trading name of Stonewall is Stonewall Equality Limited, a company registered in England and Wales with company number 02412299.

  • Russia: Lesbian activist pleads mass asylum over anti-gay laws — ‘get us the hell out of here’
  • A lesbian journalist and activist living in Russia has said that anti-gay violence and legislation has gotten so bad for the country, their only hope now is to get as many LGBT citizens to asylum as possible. In a Huffington Post interview, Masha Gessen said it is time for Russian LGBT citizens to flee the country in order to escape what she says has now become an “all-out war” against gay people. President Vladimir Putin signed the controversial law in June banning the promotion of “non-traditional relationships” toward minors, a move that has been criticised as part of a broader crackdown on Russia’s gay community. On Friday, a bill was introduced in the Russian Duma that compares LGBT people to alcoholics and drug abusers and would deny LGBT Russians custody of their own biological or adopted children. Ms Gessen said she has already sent her eldest son overseas because she feared he would be taken by the government. She said: ”My situation is that my partner and I are raising three kids, one of whom is adopted and two of whom are biological. “In June the Russian parliament banned adoption by same-sex couples. It was a fair assumption that the law could be used to annul the adoption of our oldest son, so we made the decision to send our oldest son out of the country immediately.” She added: “I had a horrible conversation with my daughter this morning. I got the news of this bill while I was sending her off to school. I said, ‘They’ve finally filed the bill.’ Obviously we’ve talked about this at length in the family, and we expected something like this would show up. “And she’s 11. She sat there thinking. After about 15 minutes she said, ‘Can I stay with my other mom if they take me away from you?’ She can’t grasp this, that they’re trying to outlaw our whole family, that there isn’t the option of going with one or the other.” Ms Gessen claimed that despite international protests, the crackdown on LGBT people in Russia has only gotten worse, and that LGBT Russians are “living through an all-out hatred campaign that’s been unleashed by the Kremlin.” She said: ”You turn on the television, you see somebody highly placed, talking about whether the homosexual ‘propaganda’ law is enough, or if we need to take it further. That sounds like a call to violence. “It’s taken as a call to violence, sometimes operating in many cities, in the very center of Moscow, in the trendiest of bars, where people have been getting beaten up, and the police do not interfere. Anti-gay violence is seen as par for the course, and if you don’t want violence, remove the gays, not the perpetrators.” Ms Gessen believes that the events of recent days, and Putin’s interview with the Associated Press this week, in which he claimed that charges of homophobia were exaggerated and that Russia could not be homophobic because “Tchaikovsky was said to have been gay” and Russians love his music, show that criticism from outside is not going to change anything inside Russia. She said: “At this point, with the fact that they’re proposing this law during the G20 Summit, it shows that no Western pressure is going to keep Russia from passing anti-gay laws, from endangering the lives of lesbian and gay people, from endangering our families.” “It’s high time to talk about asylum,” she added. “The only way at this point that the US can help Russian gays and lesbians is get us the hell out of here.” As President Obama met with LGBT activists as his last official engagement during his trip to St Petersburg for the G20 summit this week, the activists noted the significance of the fact that he met with them. The head of the Russian LGBT Network Igor Kochetkov, said: “For me the very fact that members of the LGBT community were invited to this meeting is important.” He went on to say, however that Obama said “nothing concrete” about internal Russian affairs, respite assurances that the US had communicated its concerns. In his meeting with Vladimir Putin at G20 this week, Prime Minister David Cameron also revealed he had “raised concerns” with the Russian President  http://goo.gl/rL0dOa
  • Tory MPs urge David Cameron to scrap equal marriage bill over UKIP threat
  • David Cameron, has been urged to scrap the equal marriage bill, in an effort to attempt to win back voters who chose UKIP over his party in last week’s local elections. The Prime Minister was told to take urgent action, or that he would face losing members of the Conservative party to the UK Independence Party. A former defence minister Sir Gerald Howarth, said his constituents were “fed up to the back teeth” because he said the Government had failed to address promises made. He went on to suggest that Cameron should take action by adopting a plan to throw out the equal marriage bill, as well as to opt out of the European Convention on Human Rights, cut immigration, hold an immediate EU referendum and freeze the overseas aid budget, reports the Times. In a move that was seen as acknowledging the threat of UKIP, last week Cameron pledged to publish a referendum bill, and had said he would do “everything I can” to show voters that he would hold a referendum on the EU, even if the bill was defeated in the House of Commons. The latest local election results show the Conservatives had lost control of nine councils – with UKIP making large gains, polling an average share of 25%. This success came in spite of a Tory Cabinet Minister dismissing UKIP as a “collection of clowns”. Cameron is facing calls form backbench MPs to introduce the measures to win back voters, following UKIP’s successes. Sources within the Conservative party suggested that UKIP could could soon win a by-election in anything but a safe Labour seat, and that the party headed by Nigel Farage, would do well in next year’s European elections, reports the Telegraph. Peter Bone, MP for Wellingborough, and a strong and vocal opponent to measures to legalise equal marriage, said that the Government should scrap the bill to legalise it, as well as cut international aid. He said: ”Those are things that Conservatives want and that’s what UKIP voters want.” He went on to say that Tories should be allowed to stand as “Conservative and UKIP” candidates, if given an endorsement by Farage’s party. Nigel Farage yesterday suggested that, if David Cameron were removed, his party would consider a Tory-UKIP pact. He said: “If David Cameron gets removed and somebody else was put in place who wanted to come and talk to us and say ‘Shall we find an accommodation?’, we’d consider it. “We have got to grow. But please don’t think it’s impossible. UKIP is here to stay.” http://goo.gl/dWoCa

    Elton John keen to wed after passing of equal marriage bill
  • Sir Elton John has revealed that he is keen to marry his civil partner David Furnish, describing the introduction of equal marriage in England and Wales as a “gift.” Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 66-year-old singer said: ”Absolutely, we’re going to get married. We had our civil partnership on the first day it was legally possible. Same-sex people have been waiting a long time for things to happen to them. “I’ve been through hell [throughout] my 50s and 60s and even before then, so when a government gives you this legislation, which is so wonderful and we didn’t expect it to come so soon in society, then you seize it by the horns and you say, ‘Yes, we’re gonna do this because it’s such a gift and we never thought we’d have it’.” Sir Elton John and David Furnish were among the very first couples in the UK to enter a civil partnership, holding a ceremony at Windsor Guildhall on the day the legislation came into force in December 2005. Same-sex marriage in the England and Wales was given Royal Assent and became law in July this year. Speaking about life in a civil partnership, the star said: “It did make a difference when we had our civil partnership. When we exchanged vows it made our relationship stronger. We’re 20 years together this year, but commitment like that really strengthened our relationship.” He added: “Now, with the marriage thing, we won’t have a big wedding because we already did that with our civil partnership.” Sir Elton John and David Furnish have been a couple since 1993, and have two sons together. They celebrated the arrival of 2-year-old Zachary in 2010, while their second son, Elijah, was born in January this year. The pair were recently named London’s fifth most influential couple by the London Evening Standard. Earlier this week, Russian anti-gay groups called on authorities to ban Sir Elton from performing in Moscow in December. The singer had previously indicated that he would not cancel the upcoming performance, saying: “As a gay man, I can’t leave those people on their own without going over there and supporting them.” http://goo.gl/Ss3ibw
  • Moscow: Police arrest LGBT campaigners over Olympic protest
  • Police in Moscow arrested several LGBT rights activists earlier this week who were protesting outside Russia’s Olympic headquarters in the capital. The campaigners were attempting to stage a protest as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) began its final inspection of facilities in Sochi, where the Winter Olympics are due to be held next year. Nikolai Alexeyev, head of the campaign group Gay Russia, was one those detained. Sky News reports he later announced on Twitter that all the activists had been released, but now faced heavy fines for attending an illegal protest. Russia has come under scrutiny as the next host of the Winter Olympics because of laws passed this summer outlawing “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors,” which LGBT campaigners worry may apply to gay athletes and visitors to the Games. On Thursday, the IOC said they were satisfied Russia’s anti-gay laws do not threaten the Olympic Charter. “Everything is really magnificent,” said IOC Co-ordination Committee Chairman Jean-Claude Killy. Gay British actor Sir Ian McKellen has described the legislation as “appalling” – but does not believe boycotting the Games is the answer. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Sir Ian said: “If we were to not hold the Games because of internal politics of the country in question – probably they would never take place (anywhere).” Boycotts could be staged for a whole host of other concerns, such as “America’s foreign policy”, the actor suggested. “As a gay man, it is absolutely appalling to me that this law has been passed, which would inhibit me and any gay athletes who go to Russia for the Winter Olympics to be simply themselves”. http://goo.gl/MzuC6Q
  • Former US President George H Bush is official witness for same-sex marriage ceremony
  • Former President George H Bush and his wife, Barbara, have served as two of the official witnesses at a same-sex marriage ceremony of two long standing friends. The weekend wedding of Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen took place in Maine. Ms Clement told the Washington Post: “This is such a wonderful time for change in our legal system. Who would be best to help us acknowledge the importance of our wedding as our friends and as the former leader of the free world. When they agreed to do so we just felt that it was the next acknowledgment of being ‘real and normal’.” The Bush family’s spokesman said that they attended the marriage as private citizens. Mr Bush wore one red and one blue sock as he signed the couple’s paperwork. Speaking to ‘CBS This Morning’ on 25 April this year, journalist Charlie Rose asked Mr Bush’s son, the former President George W Bush about his 2004 endorsement of a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. “Yeah, well, I’m not, I’m not weighing in on these issues, as you know, because I’ve made the decision to get off the stage,” Bush replied. “And so I’m off the stage.” Laura Bush, who has famously disagreed with her husband on the issue of marriage equality, announced her support for the measure in 2010, during an interview on CNN. Barack Obama became the first sitting US president to back marriage equality in May 2011. http://goo.gl/Yj4hmO
  • Gay Tory MP Crispin Blunt faces reselection process
  • Tory MP Crispin Blunt says he’s “disappointed” to have been forced to reapply as the Conservative candidate for his parliamentary seat of Reigate in Surrey. In a statement to PinkNews.co.uk, Mr Blunt said: “I am disappointed not to receive the endorsement of the Reigate and Banstead Conservative Association’s Executive Council as the Parliamentary Candidate at the 2015 General Election. “However, it will now be for all members of the Conservative Party locally to make their decision and I will be seeking their support.” In order to remain as the Reigate Conservative candidate at the next general election, Mr Blunt has been forced to reapply by his local Conservative Association’s Executive Council. Failure to convince enough of its members to support his candidacy could mean the former prison’s minister is deselected in favour of a new Conservative candidate. Mr Blunt came out as gay in 2010, when he separated from his wife of 20 years. He has been a passionate advocate of LGBT rights in recent years and a strong supporter of David Cameron’s commitment to legalise equal marriage in England and Wales. In May 2012, Mr Blunt recorded an Out4Marriage video. The MP is also a patron of the Kaleidoscope Trust, a UK based international LGBT rights charity. Ahead of May’s third reading of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, Mr Blunt told PinkNews.co.uk that David Cameron had shown “fantastic leadership” on equal marriage.  Mr Blunt also said he had received great support from local Tory activists in his constituency, following his decision to come out in 2010. “The lesson I would take from my own experiences is actually just how astonishingly tolerant the Conservative Party is. We now have more out gay MPs than all of the other parties put together, now we couldn’t be in that position if we weren’t getting support from our own constituency associations.” http://goo.gl/srHyWM

    19th-century gay
  • In France they were known as "chestnut gatherers." Brits called them "lavender aunts." The names suggest a quieter, saucier time, when the diluted champagne flowed and gay men and women could live relatively harassment-free lives. And yet the law tells a different story. Gays in the 19th century were living under a death sentence. Sodomy was punishable by death in England until 1861. Forty-six people were executed in England alone between 1810 and 1835. But in Strangers, Graham Robb argues that persecution was the exception, and that homosexual life in Europe was, if not thriving, then vibrant. To build this case, he combs through criminal records, letters, diaries, newspapers, and libraries of literature to find a "vanished civilization," Wildean before Wilde was a star. In doing so, he takes on French philosopher Michel Foucault, who theorized that until Victorian doctors came up with the category homosexual, no one identified him or herself as such. Strangers builds its case slowly, and the first half of the book almost refutes the author’s thesis. Although Robb credits doctors with giving gays a sense of community, a place to tell their stories, the downside of their diagnoses seems hardly worth it. Many physicians believed that men and women could masturbate themselves into "sexual inversion," as it was then called. The criteria for identifying gays seem even more haphazard. For some reason, the ability to urinate in a straight line was a tell-tale sign. One medical man devised a rather ingenious test. "Throw an object at the lap of a sitting homosexual, said the Berlin doctor Magnus Hirschfeld in 1913, and he will automatically open his legs to catch it. A lesbian, being a natural trouser-wearer, will close her legs." And as long as homosexuality was a condition, there could be a cure. Thus, the homosexual became "a walking laboratory." There were mild treatments, such as a New York doctor’s prescription of "cold baths with outdoor exercise and the study of mathematics." Others prescribed going to prostitutes. When Oscar Wilde left prison, Edward Dowson persuaded him to visit a lady of the evening in Dieppe in order to develop more "wholesome tastes." He emerged unconvinced: "It was like chewing cold mutton!" And yet Robb asserts that there were places in Europe where gay life was actively, uninhibitedly lived and gay men and women could meet each other: the docks in Barcelona, the Champs-Élysées in Paris, Broadway and Central Park in New York, and almost anywhere in Naples. In big cities, encoding behavior was not just a necessity, it was a sport. "Visiting cards with photo-portraits were exchanged like cigarette cards," Robb writes, and the selectivity and secret quality of this life bred a closeness that made the world seem small. There was even the Gay Grand Tour, which stretched from London to Amsterdam and Paris and beyond, anticipating the party circuits of the 21st century. One obvious flaw with Strangers is that it focuses almost exclusively on the upper echelons, a problem Robb attributes to historical record. It is also unfortunate that the book is tilted more toward gay male life than lesbian life. To read Strangers is to hear a lot about Tchaikovsky, André Gide, Walt Whitman, Henry James, Marcel Proust, and John Maynard Keynes, men of privileged intellect or station, or both, who had access to a larger network of people and whose lives were individually documented. Still, one could hardly pick a better literary sleuth to peek into these lives. Robb’s previous biographies of Rimbaud, Hugo, and Balzac were notable for their combination of research and page-turning readability. Strangers is a starchier read — you might want to draw an outline while perusing so as to keep track of his argument. But often enough, he digs up some juicy tidbit that makes this book worth its taking-your-medicine tone. In the later sections, as he delves into the lives of one figure after another, he turns up a diary by Walt Whitman in which the great bard recorded his nightly conquests. "Saturday night Mike Ellis — wandering at the corner of Lexington av. & 32nd st. — took him home to 150 37th street, — 4th story back room — bitter cold night." With its graphs and appendices, its 25-page list of works cited, Strangers may satisfy scholars. But it is in details like Whitman’s diary entry that the message borne out by the statistics comes clear: gay life was alive and well in the 19th century. It almost makes one want to sound a barbaric yawp of celebration. http://goo.gl/PAgxo

    How to get a job - Part 2
  • ‘Your CV is also important. We look for key degrees and universities when assessing candidates for graduate roles, so make it clear at the start of your CV what and where you have studied. Other ways to make your CV stand out include: • Make it clear and easy to read; • Use bullet points; • Include details of your education; • Include interesting and thought out interests; and • Make sure that there are no typos – take your time and get it right.' The other thing to think about’, says Palmer, ‘is mentoring. You may have a perception that mentoring is something that is more useful as your career develops, but it can also be quite powerful at the beginning of your career. Here’s a few tips: • Think carefully about what you want from a mentor. At the start of the career I’d suggest going for someone that is a few steps ahead of you in your chosen field. Someone who remembers what it’s like to be a graduate and who will be able to guide your choices as to what type of role or what firm that would best suit you. • Be professional in your approach. By asking someone to act as your mentor, you are asking them to give up their time to help you. Be clear that you are asking them because you respect them and value their opinion and insights. • Be structured in your approach. When meeting with your mentor ensure that you have some specific queries that would be useful to discuss. Don’t expect your mentor to do the work. Do some research, develop some options you’d like to bounce around, present information clearly to your mentor. • Respect your mentor’s time. Keep your sessions short and to the point. Be punctual.' Let’s go to work. http://goo.gl/zU1zd
  • How to get a job - Part 1
  • Industry experts to share their top tips for new LGBT graduates getting their first step on the career ladder At this time of year many graduates around the world are starting to face up to their final exams, anticipating the results that they will achieve, and begin to turn their mind to what happens next. Whatever you have been studying, for most people the logical first step is to try to secure a role in your chosen field. It may sound straightforward, but getting your first job after graduation can be a bit of a challenge – it takes focus, determination, persistence, and a bit of luck. To help you to prepare for your job-hunting campaign, we spoke with human resources specialist Joseph Palmer and recruitment consultant Kevin Martin to get some guidance. ‘When starting out’, says Martin, ‘it can be a bit difficult to know where to start your search. My top tips are: • Talk to your careers advisors at university - they’ll be able to direct you to key websites or resources relevant to your chosen field; • Look at the large blue chips for graduate schemes; • Go to all the industry events for graduates; and • Search recruitment websites for graduate roles. ‘If you’re not seeing jobs advertised that you want to apply for, then look for a role that is at least within your chosen industry and go for that – or think about the companies that might recruit what you want to do and approach them directly. ‘If you're applying for lots of jobs but not getting any interviews that probably means that there are lots of other people in the job market – usually when people graduate you get an influx of candidates at the same level. Be persistent. If there is a recruitment agent involved then call them and keep calling them. If they insist on you sending in your CV then follow up with another telephone call. Also keep a track of where your CV has been sent and stage you are at with each one.' But what about when you get to an interview - how do you make sure you’re saying the right things? ‘I’ve interviewed a lot of graduates in my time’, says Palmer, ‘so I’ve seen some great examples of how to make a good impression and I’ve seen some total disasters. Here’s my tips for graduates that are preparing for an interview: • Do your homework. Most companies publish an enormous amount about themselves on the internet - there’s really no excuse for not knowing the basics of the company. Who’s the CEO? What markets do they operate in? What are their key products or services? Where are their opportunities for growth? Be prepared to answer the question - “why do you want to work for us?” • Dress accordingly. It’s better to err on the conservative side but I’d encourage you to go snooping. Do a dry run to the office of the firm you’re applying to - not only will you know how long it takes to get there, but you’ll get a sense of what the people that work there are wearing. • Plan your key points. Don’t script your answers (it will make you sound like a robot), but think about what you want to say and how best to showcase your skills and experience. Formal interviews will often ask you about a situation that you’ve been in, what you did, and what was the result - answering questions in this style can take a bit of practice. • Ask questions. Most interviewers like talking about themselves so give them the opportunity to impress you. Questions such as “What could I do in the first three months that would be most beneficial to the company” or “Why do you enjoy working here?” are useful to throw into any interview. • Be enthusiastic and confident. Even a highly skilled applicant can fail if they don’t actually look like they want the job. I’ve given jobs to people who might not have the highest qualifications but seem to be most motivated to do the job. Never underestimate the power of enthusiasm.’ Recruitment agencies can play a key role in getting candidates in front of companies that are hiring, so I asked Martin to share the process that recruitment consultants use when assessing candidates:
‘We prefer telephone calls – call and sell yourself into the role, build relationships with agents. We are trained to ask open probing questions about your experience and what you want to do, so be prepared. If you don’t have work experience to talk about then talk about other things that show your skills.

Samasooliste paaride kooselust tekkivaid õiguseid ja kohustusi reguleeriv kooseluseadus, mis on justiitsministeeriumis ettevalmistamisel olnud, kuid tänaseks seisma jäänud, aitaks olulisel määral lahendada praegust olukorda ja oleks ühtlasi selge sõnum ühiskonnale, et Eestis on kõik perekonnad olulised. Õiguskantsler on juba 2011. aasta maikuus öelnud, et selline olukord, kus samasooliste isikute kooselu on õiguslikult reguleerimata, on põhiseadusega vastuolus. Sel nädalal ütles peaminister Andrus Ansip riigikogus, et samasoolistel paaridel on õigus oma kooselu seaduse järgi reguleeritud saada. Kooseluseadus ei võta kelleltki midagi ära, kuid lisab turvalisust inimestele, kes Eestis elavad ja soovivad seda ka edaspidi teha. Eesti ühiskond on liialt väike, et inimesi üksteisele vastandada. Küsimus on selles, kui turvaliselt inimesed ennast Eestis tunda saavad ja kas riik neid ja nende perekondi tunnustab, kas annab võimaluse olla siin ühiskonnas kaitstud. Eestile on kasulik liikuda hoolivama ühiskonna suunas, kus väärtustatakse kõiki inimesi ja hoitakse kõiki peresid, siis on meie riigis inimestel hea ja turvaline elada. Inimeste ja eri perekondade vastandamine toob aga kaasa valu ja kurbust mitte ainult samasoolistele paaridele, aga ka nende vanematele, lastele ja lähedastele. Projekt "Erinevus rikastab" Projektijuht Kari Käsper: Samasooliste kooselu või abielu õiguslik reguleerimine võib aidata kaasa lesbide, geide ja biseksuaalsete inimeste aktsepteerimisele täisväärtuslike ühiskonna liikmetena, millest on kasu kõigi ühiskonna liikmete jaoks. Teiste riikide kogemus on näidanud, et riikides, milles samasooliste kooselu või abielu on seadustatud, on see kaasa toonud ka suurema sallivuse seksuaalvähemuste suhtes ühiskonnas. Ka Eestis on avalik arvamus muutunud sallivamaks ning samasooliste kooselu seadustamine aitaks sellele veelgi kaasa. TTÜ õiguse instituudi tellitud Turu-uuringute AS 2012. aasta mais läbi viidud avaliku arvamuse küsitluse kohaselt toetab samasooliste kooselu seadustamist 46% ning sooneutraalset abielu 34% Eesti elanikest. 2006. aastal oli Eurobarometeri uuringu kohaselt Eestis toetus samasooliste abielule vaid 21%.
