Serbia on September 27, 2013 banned Gay Pride for the third year running, saying the risk of allowing the parade to go ahead was too high. Following the ban, a few hundred gay activists gathered before Serbian government building late on September 27 carrying a huge banner that read 'This is pride.' Escorted by dozens of policemen in anti-riot gear, the group then marched throughout downtown Belgrade to the Serbian parliament building, holding a huge flag in rainbow colours.
