We belong’: Muslim Kosovo’s first LGBTQ bar is booming

As the sun rises over Pristina, the call to prayer echoes through the Kosovo capital just as the patrons of its only LGBTQ bar wrap up a night of partying. Once a bastion of traditional values, Muslim-majority Kosovo has experienced a massive opening in the years since declaring independence from Serbia in 2008. With just 1.8 million people, Kosovo has seen its arts and culture scene blossom, including the embrace by many of its LGBTQ community. “It is a good thing as it shows that we can live together in the same place. You with your thoughts, me with mine and only five minutes away from each other,” said Erblin Nushi, a 31-year-old filmmaker and occasional drag performer at the Bubble pub.
