This Sunday, more than 1,000 LGBT advocates in Serbia held their first pride parade in four years. And for the first time in ten years, it didn’t end in violence. 

Pride marches from the last three years had been banned, but this year, officials allowed the ban to expire at midnight the day before the parade.

As the parade date approached, anti-gay graffiti popped up all over the city of Belgrade, and a massive protest took place the night before, complete with a giant police force (some photos of that above, too). Though there were multiple arrests at the parade Sunday, the event went off without any large-scale violence. 

Human rights are a question mark here, and activists know it. In fact, one sign read, “For all the victims of violence in Serbia.”

If Fox thinks that a Muslim can’t write a book about Christianity
