BELGRADE – LGBT organisations on Thursday signed a platform aimed at establishing unity in the fight for the rights of LGBT persons, as well as cooperation with other organisations focusing on protection of human rights.
The platform was signed by a total of seven LGBT organisations, five of which are from Belgrade, while the other two are from Novi Sad and Sabac, respectively, said Boban Stojanovic, a representative of Belgrade Pride Parade.
The signing of the platform is one of the most significant events in the history of the LGBT movement whereby the movement commemorates 25 years of its activism.
Dragana Todorovic of Labris said that the goal of the platform is to define the cooperation of LGBT organisations and establish joint activities and coordinated efforts towards improving the quality of life of LGBT citizens and citizenettes.
In addition to LGBT organisations, the platform was joined by the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights (YUCOM), the National Democratic Institute, the Heartefact Fund and Civil Rights Defenders.
