Bosnia’s zealots got their way.
After ten people were hurt last night in an attack on the nation’s first gay festival, organizers have announced they’re canceling the next three day of events. Organizer Svetlana Djurkovic remarked, “We cannot guarantee the safety of visitors. The festival is closing down.”
The Helsinki Committee for Human Rights’ Srdjan Dizdarevic called the attacks uncivilized and blasted the perpetrators’ fascist rhetoric. Many nationalists and Muslim leaders insist we gays go against their way of life, which obviously includes being party poopers.
