On June 22 Skopje’s Pride Week was opened in Skopje’s LGBTI Support Center. Eyewitnesses informed Human Rights Watch that about 40 LGBT people attended the screening of several short LGBTI themed films as well as a discussion on the right to health in relation to transgender individuals. Shortly after the event started, at around 6:30 PM, a mob of about 30 people gathered in front of the Center and started shouting derogatory and homophobic slogans and threatened the people inside. The attackers threw stones, bottles, and bricks at the Center. Inside, according to the reports we received, the people in the audience were scared and feared for their safety. The police came and the mob dispersed, leaving one policeman wounded after he was hit by one of the objects thrown from the mob.
