Sensitive to particular needs

There are an estimated 50.000 lesbian women and gay men living in Frankfurt. Many lesbians and gay men from the Rhine-Main area also belong to the Frankfurt gay community.

Progress is being made:

  • the city and banks have undertaken to tackle discrimination in the workplace
  • the Protestant Church blesses lesbian and gay partnerships

Despite this, sensitivity to the particular needs and problems of lesbians and gay men is still often lacking.

The Department for Women's Rights therefore promotes special programmes and is a point of contact for lesbian women's and girls' concerns.
