Porodica bi trebala biti utočište LGBT osoba
Kako živjeti u Sarajevu kad su ti dvije sestre lezbijke
Moja kćerka je najbolja osoba na svijetu
Moj sin ne zna da mu sestra ima djevojku
Mase su oduvijek osuđivale sve što ne mogu razumjeti
Nasilje je ovdje vaspitna mjera i ništa ne radimo da se to promijeni
Campaign for the occasion of the International Coming Out Day is organised within the EU funded project Enhancing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans rights in BiH in line with EU standards.
