PRIDE everywhere – A Strategic Approach to Human Rights of LGBTI persons in Montenegro

About the project

Discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity has no place in modern society. Everyone should enjoy the same rights.

  • Improve safety and security of LGBTI persons through increased capacities of institutions;
