THE SHOT: Croatia’s Flash Mob Proposals


THE SHOT — “Downtown Zagreb today was unusually busy with various events, from birthday concerts, to student protests and performances on Ban Jelacic Square. But most attraction was drawn by a group of ten gay couples who kneeled down in front of their partners exactly at noon, offering them rings, after which long kissing followed. This was the first Croatian Flashmob Wedding organised by the Zagreb Pride association on occasion of the international day against homophobia and transphobia. … The primary goal was to provoke snobs and consumer trend addicts, which has gained a much wider dimension when organisations of minority social groups accepted such acts of demonstration.” [Javno]
