Today, the European Union celebrates the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. This celebration marks an important opportunity to promote human rights and ensure that everyone, regardless of their diversity, fully enjoys these rights without discrimination.
It is very positive that many activities to celebrate this day are taking place today in Serbia.
Different events including the “Duga” award ceremony, the Pride gathering and the Pride week in Novi Sad confirm the commitment of the civil society and the Government to continue their efforts in fighting discrimination and making a society equal for everybody.
Today is the #IDAHOT day, the EU promotes & protects the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons.
🇪🇺🏳️🌈 LGBTI rights defenders in the EU and beyond must be protected. #EU4LGBTI
