BELGRADE – A pride parade will take place in Belgrade on September 18,  Boban Stojanovic from the Pride Parade Organizing Committee said on Tuesday.

At a conference on homophobia in Serbia held on the occasion of International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, he described as important the fact that the gay pride march would go through downtown streets.

“I believe the Pride will not be brought into question this year either,” Stojanovic said.

Things are changing slowly – 2015 was a historically important year for the LGBT movement as the second pride parade was held in a row, which has not been seen in 15 years, he noted.

Participants of the conference also underlined the need for improving the position of the LGBT community in Serbia.
