My child also had problems, at school, at college, in public transport…” said the mother of one of the participants in the Pride march.

Sarajevo Canton's Prime Minister Edin Forto said that human rights belong to everyone:

“Honestly, I haven't been on social networks much, it's important that there is no hate speech in public. This is a protest, this is a fight for civil rights, civil rights cannot be seen as a buffet, all civil rights for all people throughout BiH. Societies that are open are societies that end up in the richest community of states, and that is the EU. Our citizens have shown a hundred times that they are tolerant. BiH deserves to be in the EU. In the coming years, we will see that tolerance will win. I expect big steps towards the EU after the elections,” Forto said.
