On January 28th 2014, Aurélien MAZUY (President of Rainbow Rose) presented the network in the European Parliament to all the group of the S&D. This presentation took place after a debate on Lunacek’s report asking for a LGBTI roadmap at European level. MEPs from the group were very enthousiastic about the relaunch of the network and are keen on making LGBT rights a core value to defend.
