The second Pride March in Bosnia and Herzegovina to take place in August

 

The second Pride March of the LGBTIQ community in Bosnia and Herzegovina will be held on August 23 in Sarajevo with the aim of contributing to a better position of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) persons in society, organizers said.

Although faced with an epidemiological situation caused by coronavirus, the LGBTIQ community says it knows what it is like to live in isolation and fear of potential attackers on a daily basis.

They single out that “there are no safe public spaces for LGBTIQ people in BiH”, and that they face homophobia even when going to public institutions, cafes, restaurants, theaters, cinemas or any other public place.
