A Pride Parade with about 100 participants started off at Roosevelt Square in downtown Zagreb at 3.30 pm on Saturday, marking the 20th LGBTIQ march in Zagreb under the motto "Pride Forever".
Participants are carrying rainbow-coloured signs, flags, clothes and props as well as banners reading “Love doesn’t ask what’s under the skirt/pants”, “Faggots are workers too” and “Homosexual from head to toe”.
A political rally called “Twenty prides together in comradeship and resistance” is scheduled for 5.30 pm at Ribnjak Park.
This year’s Pride is one of the first mass gatherings to be held under COVID rules that went into force on 1 July, under which participants in larger gatherings must have digital COVID certificates. Dozens of wardens at Roosevelt Square checked if they did.
