Civil society organization Safe Pulse of Youth has presented within the project Coalition for Equality – STEP a new publication titled „On the other side of homophobia: Analysis of the life experiences of LGBT persons in Serbia and recommendations for lowering discrimination“.
Twenty people were interviewed in the course of preparing this publication, in order to attain the personal confessions of LGBT people. These confessions were then classified into three categories, in order to emphasize the numerous difficulties that LGBT people face in everyday life – in the family home, at school and at work.

The focus of the publication is in three parts: in the first part of the publication the stigma and discrimination that LGBT people face in Serbia is described; then the psychological problems that this discrimination leads to, and in the final part recommendations were made as to how discrimination can be lowered.
