Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, the country’s first openly gay leader, joined Belgrade mayor Zoran Radojcic at the Belgrade Pride parade on Sunday. They were among several hundred participants who marched from Slavija Square to Students Square, where a pop music concert closed out a week of activities.

Others marching in the rally included the U.S. ambassador to Serbia, Kyle Scott, as well as ambassadors from France and Italy and the head of the EU Delegation to Serbia.

A kilometer away, a few dozen anti-LGBTQ protesters held Christian banners and sang religious songs. Though no major incidents were reported, authorities told Radio Free Europe three protesters were detained shortly before the event began.
