6 out of 10 Romanians don’t want a gay person in the family, 1 of 3 don’t want Roma ethnics as relatives – IRES survey reads

Six Romanians out of ten don’t want a gay person in the family and 29% don’t want to have Roma ethnics as relatives, an IRES survey, conducted upon the request of the National Council for Combating Discrimination (CNCD), romaniatv.net reports.

Discrimination in Romania is mainly defined as homophobia, but there are significant shades of xenophobia, chauvinism and anti-Semitism.

Although the majority of respondents claim that sexual orientation does not matter (52%), the same with ethnicity (72%) in relations with a person, the gay people and Roma ethnics have the lowest confidence degree.

Thus, 74% of respondents say they do not have confidence in homosexuals and 72% in Roma ethnics. The rankings referring to lack of confidence continues with immigrants (68%), Muslims (68%), persons infected with HIV/AIDS (58%), persons of other religion (58%), Hungarians (53%) and Jews (46%).
