The EU LGBT Survey conducted by the Fundamental Rights Agency 2013 has indicated that LGBT people face a less inclusive social environment. Specifically, discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation is 60% in Croatia and Lithuania and 48% in Greece.
E.T.Ho.S project aims at positively influencing the media representation of LGBT people and the policy making toward the elimination of homophobic, transphobic and biphobic media discourse, by bringing together LGBT organizations, NGOs, media professionals and media students.
