Serbia cannot be an EU member if it persistently refuses to enact laws that protect the human rights of the LGBTQ+ community, Belgrade Pride Director told EURACTIV. On Saturday, Belgrade hosted the Pride Parade, but the fact that physical attacks, hate speech, discrimination, and restrictions are a part of daily life for the LGBTQ+ community cannot be ignored. Between 10,000 and 15,000 people walked in the Parade, considered the largest so far in Serbia. A few people were arrested on unknown charges, but no larger incidents were reported.
