Pride Parade 2010 organizers see it as an inclusive event, as peaceful and nonviolent public meetings and a place in which to show that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Serbia can freely and without fear can walk the streets of Belgrade with the support of relatives, friends, associates and all those who advocate for equality, tolerance and respect for human rights. Parade, organizers do not see it as the ultimate goal but as an instrument for society to draw attention to problems that the LGBT population in Serbia face every day and they would request that state deals with violence and discrimination systematically.
