Gay Pride Parade Planned for Serbia

Following threats of violence that canceled last year's gay pride parade, organizers in Serbia will try again next month.

According to the Associated Press, the march planned for October 10 in Belgrade would be the first in nearly a decade. Marchers plan to use the slogan, "Let's Walk Together."

"Gays and lesbians often face harassment and pressure in predominantly conservative Serbia," reported the AP. "Extremists broke up the Balkan nation's first gay pride march in 2001 and beat up several participants. No gay pride marches have been held since then."

Last year, a gay pride parade in Serbia was canceled because police said they could not guarantee security.
