Use common sense and appropriate discretion in public.
That is the advice from gay groups and the British Embassy in Belgrade to gay people planning to visit the city for the Eurovision Song Contest.
A leaflet entitled A Short Guide Through LGBT Belgrade has been produced by the the Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) of Belgrade and paid for by the embassy.
It reveals while Serbia has an equal age of consent, 14, “the general public consider homosexuality to be acceptable only when it is not displayed in public.”
Two-thirds of Serbs consider homosexuality an illness and half want their government to work to prevent it.
