Original title: Acceptatie van homoseksuelen, biseksuelen en transgenders in Nederland 2013

The Dutch government is committed to equal rights for and social acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals, and also to securing their acceptance in Dutch society. Since social acceptance is one of the most important goals of the gay emancipation policy, at the request of the Minister of Education, Culture and Science the Netherlands Institute for Social Research/SCP publishes a concise report every two years on the current situation. The present edition also looks for the first time at the social acceptance of bisexuals and transgenders.
The conclusion is that acceptance in the general population is continuing to increase, but still lags behind in certain religious, ethnic and political groups, as does the acceptance of certain categories of people (e.g. people who do not behave in accordance with what is expected of members of their sex).
