Members of the LGBT community marched through the streets of Sarajevo on Sunday for the capital’s first-ever pride parade.
Participants could be seen waving rainbow and transgender flags.
Bedita Islamovic, one of the participants, said “it is important to provide opportunities for the people to go out and say freely who they are. The LGBT population should have rights for their identity.”
Member of the organising committee Lejla Huremovic stated during her speech that “today, more than ever, we are saying that we will fight courageously and with dignity for our lives.”
Around 1,000 police officers were reportedly deployed amid security concerns. No incidents were reported during the parade.
