Bosnia: Fifth Sarajevo Pride Parade Draws Hundreds Amid Conservative Backdrop

On June 22, Bosnia's capital Sarajevo hosted its fifth Pride parade, with hundreds taking to the streets. Several notable Bosnian figures and international LGBTIQ+ rights supporters participated. Notably, a strict ban on political and national symbols was enforced, with only Palestinian flags were allowed. Despite Bosnia's multicultural nature, conservative attitudes towards gay rights remain dominant.
