Opinions on sexual and gender diversity in the Netherlands and Europe

Brief outline of the current situation and trends over time

Original title: "Opvattingen over seksuele en genderdiversiteit in Nederland en Europa"

This report describes the attitudes of the Dutch public to sexual and gender diversity based on the most recent and reliable figures. It looks at opinions on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons in the Netherlands, and at developments in those opinions over time.

It also describes differences between various groups in society, including school students. Several themes receive attention, such as opinions on equal rights (for example to marriage or adoption), intimacy (such as women kissing or men walking hand in hand), and gender diversity (e.g. gender reassignment surgery or people who do not feel unambiguously male or female). The opinions of the Dutch are also compared with those in other European countries.
