Serbia - Apple MapsBelgrade Pride, which is usually banned due to threats of violence, was instead this year cancelled due to flooding. The event, which often leads to confrontations between anti-gay groups, police and marchers, has been officially banned every year since 2010.

The 2010 parade was marred by violent stand-offs, and 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

However, this year’s event broke the cycle – and was cancelled over flooding instead.
