This day has been marked since 1990, when homosexuality was expelled from the list of diseases.
27 years later, the members of the LGBT population continue to have problems with the exercise of fundamental human rights, such as those to health care and freedom of expression.
Statistics show that they are often victims of their opponents and those who react aggressively to diversity.
NGO representatives remind that discrimination and physical violence are the key issues that LGBT people are exposed to.
On the occasion of this date the discussion panel was held and Deputy Mayor Prof. Dr. Nebojsa Randjelovic took part on the behalf of the City of Nis.
Earlier this year the City of Nis signed the MoU with relevant institutions on cooperation within local network for the prevention of discrimination against LGBT people.
