ZAGREB, July 5, 2020 – The initiative called “Proud Zagreb” on Saturday afternoon held a pride ride with the aim of promoting the rights of LGBTIQ+ groups in Croatia.
According to the organisers of this protest, some 500 participants — members of LGBTIQ+ groups and their friends — took part in this bicycle ride in Zagreb streets.
They also made public the names of candidates running in the Croatian parliamentary elections who signed the demands which the LGBTIQ+ groups prepared for prospective members of the new, 10th parliament.
According to them, 117 candidates supported their demands, and the lion’s share of them were from the left-green coalition “We Can!”.
Activist Erin Vlahovic announced some more events and actions with the purpose of promoting the rights of LGBTIQ+ groups.
