Queer Festival in Sarajevo

Queer FestivalOn this day, a year ago, the first attempt to organise a Queer festival in Sarajevo ended in violence. The festival had to go underground since the security of the participants could not be guaranteed by the authorities in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

To remind about everyone’s equal rights and everyone’s right to freedom of peaceful assembly and expression, a campaign is launched today all over Bosnia-Herzegovina by the organizers of the festival.

Civil Rights Defenders is actively supporting the campaign. Read our press release:
