Episode 2: Serbia’s Anti-LGBT Forces

Bellingcat Monitoring Podcast by Michael Colborne

Episode notes

I spoke for this episode with Sofija Todorović, the Belgrade-based program director at the Youth Initiative for Human Rights, a network of NGO across the Western Balkans. We spoke about the difficulties faced by the LGBT community in Serbia — including the country’s attempts to ban the Europride march in the capital, Belgrade — how anti-LGBT rhetoric and actions fit into the broader political context, and the threat posed by the far right and its allies in the mainstream.
