Comparing Intersectional Life Course Inequalities amongst LGBTQI+ Citizens in Four European Countries


, , ,

Project Details

CILIA – LGBTQI+ investigates potential inequalities experienced by people who define themselves as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersexual Queer, Intersex and/or + (LGBTQI+) at three ‘transition’ points in life:

  1. Education to work transitions;
  2. Employment progression in mid-life;
  3. The transition into retirement and its implications for end of life.

The key objective is to provide cross-cultural evidence concerning life course inequalities experienced by LGBTIQ+ people, with a special focus on the intersection of different forms of discrimination.
