BELGRADE, RS — (09-11-23) — Hundreds of LGBTQ+ Serbians and activists turned out in the Serbian capital city Saturday for Pride March 2023, amid a heavy police presence and anti-gay messages sent by the country’s conservative leadership and far-right groups.

Last year, the LGBTQ+ event was met with skirmishes between the police and anti-Pride groups who was determined to sabotage the event, claiming that it goes against their traditional Serbian Christian Orthodox values.

Thankfully there was a heavy police presence in riot gear. They even blocked off central Belgrade to prevent any shanagons from taking place.
