There is no official statistical data on the number of LGBT immigrants in the EU. Because the discrimination-free immigration processes guarantee the equal treatment and the sexual orientation of the applicants is not an essential or qualifying aspect.
The EU agency published a report on the LGBT asylum-seekers, and one of the main findings can help to understand the overall situation of those immigrants, who are members of the LGBT community in Europe:
"Most incidents of violence or harassment motivated by bias against LGBTI asylum seekers are not reported and are not recorded as such."
LGBT Immigration - Gay Migration
Member States of the European Union are respecting human rights and guarantee those for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual applicants for naturalisation or resident status. Some countries have more lively gay communities, and there are more conservative countries, mainly in Central-East Europe, where the right of marriage for same-sex couples has not been enacted. But same-sex couples have the right to live in a registered civil union or partnership in all EU member States or is in the legislative process.
LGBT migration has several social and economic consequences. It is the movement of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people around the world, often to escape ill-treatment, discrimination and even violence due to their sexual orientation. This reason why LGBTQ people try to leave the discriminatory countries and regions to search and find the tolerant nations, where they can live free. However, members of the community can choose immigration because of quite regular reasons, as a study, work or the desire to experience how life is elsewhere.
Countries with substantial LGBTQ emigration include Brazil, Mexico, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Russia and China as well, according to Wikipedia.
Naturally, LGBTQ people are looking for the most tolerant countries to live in, and the EU countries are apparent target locations. The most straightforward and straightforward options are the several residency by investment programs for them. Through these solutions, the process of immigration is always 100% legal, secure, fast and transparent.
The term, "immigration equality" refers to the equal and discrimination-free treatment of all citizens to use their rights to immigrate their family members. It includes the rights of non-citizens regardless their passport or where they arrived from. The term also refers to the cases of the LGBTQ families. However, the process can vary from country to country because of the different levels of recognition of the same-sex relationships.
