Belgrade, September 11, 2023
The Pride march and concert of Belgrade Pride 2023 gathered more than 10,000 people and were the largest to date. Organizers announced that Pride Week in 2024 will be held from September 2 to September 8, 2024. The Pride march is scheduled for Saturday, September 7, 2024.
This year, the Pride march, as well as all other events during Pride Week, took place without incidents.
"We are proud to have once again walked the streets of the city and shown support for the rights of the LGBTI+ community. We are proud of the large number of people who joined Pride and sent a strong message that Belgrade supports diversity and inclusivity. We continue the fight for love and equality and demand that all of Belgrade Pride's demands be met," stated Belgrade Pride after Pride Week.
It is worth noting that Belgrade Pride's demands have not changed since 2014 and include the adoption of the Law on Same-Sex Partnerships; the Gender Identity Law and the improvement of healthcare services for transgender individuals; a swift and adequate response from state authorities and public condemnation by government officials of hate speech and hate-motivated crimes against the LGBTI+ community; the adoption of local action plans for the LGBTI+ community; education for youth about sexual orientation and gender identity; an apology to all citizens of Serbia who were persecuted before 1994 due to their sexual orientation and gender identity; as well as free and easily accessible pre-exposure and post-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP and PEP).
We demand that the authorities and all state institutions fulfill Belgrade Pride's demands without delay.
