The programme mainly included airing of LGBT-themed films. It worked on organizing the Skopje Pride Week in 2013.
We can’t be sure that this conversation really occurred, but what really happened is that the patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church, his holiness Irinej, explained to the masses that floods are God’s will, and a reminder to Christians of God’s anger for the Gay Pride Parade in Belgrade.

In the beginning of 2010 however, while revising the anti-discrimination law, the country's parliament removed sexual orientation from the list of protected grounds.
Currently there are no laws protecting the LGBT citizens of the country from discrimination or hate crimes due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. The law defines marriage as "a union between a man and a woman".
