Concluding Observations, CCPR/C/GRC/CO/2, 3 November 2015: Greece
C. Principal matters of concern and recommendations
Sexual orientation and gender identity
11. The Committee remains concerned about the prevalence in society of stereotypes and prejudice against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons (see CCPR/CO/83/GRC, para. 19). In particular, it is concerned about the lack of an adequate official response to complaints relating to discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity (arts. 2 and 26).
12. The State party should intensify its efforts to combat stereotypes and prejudice against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, including by:
(a) Organizing awareness-raising campaigns aimed at the general public;
(b) Providing appropriate training to public officials to end social stigmatization of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons;
(c) Ensuring that all reports of violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons are promptly and effectively investigated and that perpetrators of violence on the grounds of sexual orientation are prosecuted and sanctioned.
