Montenegro to have a Pride Parade

Timothy Kincaid

July 22nd, 2013

Montenegro is a small Eastern European nation on the Adriatic Sea about the size of Connecticut (with about one sixth of that state’s population). It’s a bit of an anomaly, in that the laws and official positions of the nation are not hostile (homosexuality was decriminalized in 1977 and Montenegro is a signatory on the UN Resolution supporting same) while the culture in this Orthodox country is socially conservative and partiarchal. Most gay people keep a very low profile.

So it is quite a notable event that a Pride Parade has been planned (AFP)

Traditionally conservative Montenegro is to hold its first ever gay pride parade later this week in the coastal town of Budva, organisers said Monday.

“The first Montenegrin gay parade will be held on Wednesday, July 24, in front of the walls of Budva’s old town,” a centuries-old tourist resort on the Adriatic Coast, said Aleksandar Zekovic of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) forum Progress.
