This Sunday, more than 1,000 LGBT advocates in Serbia held their first pride parade in four years. And for the first time in ten years, it didn’t end in violence. 

Pride marches from the last three years had been banned, but this year, officials allowed the ban to expire at midnight the day before the parade.

As the parade date approached, anti-gay graffiti popped up all over the city of Belgrade, and a massive protest took place the night before, complete with a giant police force (some photos of that above, too). Though there were multiple arrests at the parade Sunday, the event went off without any large-scale violence. 

Human rights are a question mark here, and activists know it. In fact, one sign read, “For all the victims of violence in Serbia.”

Send me a confession that you’ve always wanted to say to me on Anon. Don’t worry about giving me hints or telling me who you are. Just tell me something you’ve always wanted to say to me but haven’t had the courage to say.

Who gets to write gay rights into the history books?

outforhealth:

Writing the history of any marginalized group for the consumption of the masses is difficult, and queer history presents its own particular challenges. Until very recently, our community lacked any organizations that would have passed on history in any canonical way: we didn’t have schools or departments looking into us, museums or churches to celebrate and document us, or even welcoming and inclusive birth families to keep picture albums and personal papers. Without institutions to preserve our past and communicate it to our future, we never developed the kind of historical narratives other communities have.

We’ve rarely told our history as a straight line, and we’ve never had others tell it for us. Instead, queer people have acted as our own historians and shared our own histories as individuals and parts of small, fluid communities. Each of us held a few pieces of a mosaic that was constantly being reconfigured, like we were putting together some giant puzzle on the floor, each time we came together.

There are major drawbacks to that kind of history making – primarily, that what you know ends up defined by the community in which you move, making it easy to end up with a limited understanding of the past that privileges the experiences of people like you. But it can also be an empowering approach to a discipline – history – that most Americans are taught to see as an exercise in rote memorization.

This piece is terrific.
