Transforming Lives

MediaCenter intern Mladen Lukic receives the Srdjan Aleksic award for his reporting on LGBT rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Job loss, eviction and social ostracism are just some of the risks that LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) individuals in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) encounter when their sexual orientation is revealed. Fear of these risks prevents them from reporting discrimination and bias-motivated crimes to the police or in the media.
