Nine countries in Central, Eastern Europe and Central Asia have attempted (and some have succeeded) to pass legislation which claims to protect children from exposure to information that can harm their well-being and development. In the vast majority of these contexts, however, the type of information which was deemed to be harmful has to do with diversity of sexual orientation. 

The Thomson Reuters Foundation in partnership with IGLYO and important law firm partners is proud to release this legal analysis of 'anti-LGBT propaganda' laws, which explores the legal arguments surrounding current or proposed laws in nine jurisdictions which curtail the expression of LGBT culture and identity.

This executive summary explores the main findings of the report in regards to the nine jurisdictions and several key international covenants and treaties. A full report including full analysis of all nine jurisdictions is available upon request.
