European Union Ambassador Emanuele Giaufret said on Tuesday that everyone has the right to love whoever they choose without prejudice.

In remarks on the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT), Giaufret said that everyone should have the right to choose who to love just they have the right to life, right to breathe and right to be free, the EU Info Center said.

He said that it took centuries to take homosexuality off the list of mental illnesses but that society needs more time to give these people the right they deserve. Freedom of expression means that we can express ourselves freely and the greater that freedom, the better we are as a society on the whole, the head of the EU delegation said.

The EU Delegation building in Belgrade will be lit in the colors of the rainbow on Tuesday night as a sign of support to the LGBTIQ+ community, civil society organizations and human rights activists.
