QueerBeograd

QueerBeograd is a group of people who decided to stand against the violence:

Because first attempt of organizing Pride Parade in Belgrade in 2001. was blocked by large group of violent homophobic hooligans.
Because this violence is a result of politics of war, clericalism, nationalism, militarism and machismo that has been mainstream politics in Serbia during last 15 years.
Because second attempt to make LGBTTIQ community and politics visible on streets of Belgrade in 2004. had to be canceled coz organizers again couldn’t guarantee for participants safety.
Because the state and citizens are still ignorant toward problems of LGBTTIQ population and all the others who are “Different”. Because Human Rights are abused on daily bases.

That is why we had new concept – we refused to spend time on worries about Violence that might happen and hiring private security or police.
We wanted to build exciting cooperation between people on an international and local level, to have fun, and to promote queer politics.
In this context to be queer means to refuse social rules and to constantly re-question supposed norms of patriarchal tradition.
To create space beyond the rigid boxes of homo or hetero sexuality, allowing each other the ‘privilage’ of self definition.
To present a radical politics that sees the interconnectedness of all forms of oppression.
