Josipovic expresses support for gay pride parade in Split

Croatian Times

Croatian President Ivo Josipovic has expressed support for this summerís gay pride parade in Split but will not attend due to other commitments.

During his one-day visit to this Dalmatian town, Josipovic also visited feminist association Domine that will organise the parade in June.

"I ask Split residents, whether they agree or not with what Domine or other similar associations say, to respect their right to be different and that no one even thinks about being violent, because that would show Croatia in a very bad light," the President told those gathered.

    A country with such a behavior should NOT become part of the European Union. Only cpuntries which morally deserve to vbe ppart of this honorary club should be allowed. We already have too many disgusting countries in the EU. We don´t need another one, as Croatia seems to be.

    Leonard, you are the moron. I spend two weeks every summer in Split and Hvar, and bring American $$ there that help support your economy, and i expect Croatians to treat me like they would anyone else, regardless of my sexuality. Two men holding hands should not have to deal with simplistic Croatians attacking them on the street (which happened to a friend of mine). It's time to join the 21st century.

    What a maroon Josip is. Nobody is interested in their sexual innuendos exhibitionisms or practices on public streets. They can parade in their own bedrooms and keep their lude behaviour their. Not on our streets where families and children will be assaulted visually pornographically.
