Montenegro Getting Ready For Its First Gay Pride Parade

On May 31 Montenegro will have its first ever gay pride parade, preparation has begun for the event.

AFP reports:

Gays in the tiny Balkan country of Montenegro have begun preparations for their first gay pride parade planned for May 31, but with some trepidation.

“We seriously intend to organise the pride, but we lack political support, which means that it (…) is not safe to hold the march,” said Zdravko Cimbaljevic, head of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) forum Progress.

Cimbaljevic, whose forum is the first non-governmental organisation dealing with gay rights in Montenegro, has come under attack since the plans for the parade were announced.
