The EuroPride was launched on September 12. Its opening passed without incidents, RFERL reports. However, on Tuesday, the Serbian authorities officially banned the event. The Pride Parade, scheduled for Saturday, is also cancelled, even as the planned counter-demonstration. Interior Minister Aleksandar Vulin says that “nonsensical conflicts in the streets of Belgrade endanger the safety of participants of the march and other citizens.” The organisers of the LGBT event will do everything in their power to reverse the decision, they announced. Earlier, there were intense protests by religious and nationalist groups which opposed the LGBT agenda. Thousands of people marched in protest against the event. Nikanor Bogunovic, the prelate of the Serbian Orthodox Church, even threatened the participants of the gay parade with violence.
