Joint Statement in Support of Pride Values and the Protection and Promotion of Human Rights of LGBTIQ+ Persons

Position, 07.09.2023

On the occasion of Belgrade Pride 2023, we wish to reaffirm our commitment to respecting, promoting and protecting human rights for all. 

We proudly stand with the LGBTIQ+ community in Serbia and firmly support the values that Pride represents – acceptance, inclusion and diversity. We will continue working with local LGBTIQ+ organizations to help achieve the community’s legitimate place in society and ensure a constructive debate around equality, non-discrimination, and human rights, including the freedom of assembly and freedom of expression. These are universal rights. Regardless of where we are, who we are - or whom we love.
