Earlier this week Andalucía became a pioneer in Europe by introducing a law to guarantee the rights, equal treatment and non-discrimination against gays, lesbians, transsexuals, bisexuals and intersexuals.

Under this new law fines of between 6,000 and 120,000 euros, depending on the severity of the case, can be imposed if LGTBI people are subjected to hatred or discrimination.

This is one of the most controversial aspects in the process of drawing up a national law in this respect, because some political parties are against fines being issued. LGTBI associations, however, say people will not comply with the law if there is no penalty for breaking it.
