50,000 March to Protest Pride Parade in Belgrade, Serbia

ROME — Some fifty thousand protesters took to the streets of the Serbian capital of Belgrade on Sunday, calling for the cancellation of an upcoming EuroPride event scheduled for September 12-18.

By chanting slogans such as “Hands off our children!” and “Stop the Parade of Shame!” Belgraders rallied in support of traditional family values ​​and against LGBT indoctrination, media reported:

EuroPride, a multi-day event sponsored by the LGBT community, is held in a different European city each year, with last year taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark.

According to the organizers of EuroPride, Belgrade will be the first city in South Eastern Europe and the first outside the EEA (European Economic Area) to host a major event for the European LGBT community.

“This is an important milestone for the LGBTI+ community across the region and the start of a new era,” the EuroPride2022 site says.

“In the Western Balkans, the LGBTI+ community faces deep inequalities and discrimination,” the site says. “EuroPride in Belgrade is a turning point in the region, validating the efforts of LGBTI+ activists to achieve equality and empowering them to continue the fight.”

Sunday’s protest received support from the Serbian Orthodox Church, which has voiced its opposition to the gay pride event taking place in Belgrade.
