Sarajevo's first rainbow march in 2019

Promoting empowerment, dignity and equality of the LGBTQIA* community, pride honours queer history.

In 2019, Sarajevo celebrated its first rainbow march. Bosnia and Herzegovina was the last country in the Western Balkans to organise a parade but it gathered 3 000 participants and took place without violence. The event marked a turning point in the democratic path of the Balkan state.

Why did it take so long for Sarajevo? Was the city ready for such an event? Have actual improvements been made for the LGBTQIA* community in Bosnia and Herzegovina?

Emma Hontebeyrie (IDM) talks to Emina Bošnjak the Executive Director of the Sarajevo Open Center and Co-Chair of ILGA Europe.
