VoiceSarajevo (AFP) - "Ima izac!" which roughly translates as "Open the door, please!" is the defiant slogan of the Sarajevo's first-ever gay Pride parade, scheduled to go ahead this Sunday.
Fear gives us energy: Sarajevo braces for first Pride parade
Sarajevo is the last capital in the conservative Balkans to hold a Pride march -- and its organisers have certainly not been pushing at an open door.
"It's not easy, knowing that we live in a society that is very homophobic," said Lejla Huremovic, one of around 15 organisers from across Bosnia planning the event in an atmosphere of excitement and some trepidation.
