Belgrade Celebrates First Gay Pride in Four Years

Published Date Author: , September 28th, 2014

Serbia Gay pride - TwitterSerbia is finally allowing a gay pride event to go forward in Belgrade.

Pink News reports:

Hundreds of people are taking part in the first Belgrade Pride parade permitted to go ahead in four years. The last time police allowed Belgrade Pride to go ahead was 2010, when it was marred by violent stand-offs with far-right extremists. Around 100 people were injured at the event, as extremists threw petrol bombs at the police and gay rights activists. The event has been cancelled every year since, with the 2011, 2012 and 2013 parades all being banned by authorities over fears of violence.

It’s great to see Pride finally conquer Fear in this European country.
