Marching under the slogan ‘’I’m not giving up’’ #NeOdricemSe, Sunday evening saw thousands take part in Belgrade’s eighth Pride Parade. The latest Balkans capital to hold Pride events, the walk passed the main government institutions, to which protesters have been addressing their demands for improved LGBT rights. Despite the appointment of openly gay prime minister Ana Brnabic in 2017 who attended this year’s Pride, Serbia’s LGBT community still faces widespread discrimination. One of Belgrade Pride’s organisers Jovanka Todorović, told Euronews, ”Serbia is still conservative society where LGBTIQ topics raise a lot of public turmoil, especially surrounding Pride”. A police cordon was in place at Sunday’s Parade to separate participants from anti LGBT protesters, “calling for public morality and demonstrating at LGBTIQ presenting christian values and religious values as their own” says Todorović.
