Belgrade Holds First Gay Pride Parade In Four Years

Hundreds of gay rights activists have marched in Belgrade in Serbia's first gay pride parade in four years. Media estimate that between 1,000 and 1,500 activists took part in the peaceful march on September 28. Several thousand anti-riot police, special police units, armored vehicles, and water cannons were deployed across the capital for the march due to threats by far-right groups. Some 50 anti-gay protestors were detained during the march. The parade was banned during the last three years over security concerns after hard-line nationalists attacked marchers and clashed with police at the first-ever event in 2010, leaving 150 people injured.

The two-kilometer march began in front of the main government building in Nemanjina Street and passed along Kneza Milosa Avenue and by parliament before ending in front of Belgrade City Hall.
