Serbia’s beleaguered LGBTQ activists on Friday rallied to demand state action following a spate of violence against gays, including a stabbing that injured a young man. The gathering dubbed “Hate kills!” was held in the park in central Belgrade that was the site of the attack, in connection with which police have arrested two suspects. Three more gay men were attacked in late February, activists said, including one hit with a bottle. “We will no longer tolerate such attacks that have become frequent,” said activist Aleksandar Savic. Participants held flags and rainbow banners as they urged the authorities to act decisively to curb violence against LGBTQ community and promote tolerance.
