Belgrade, Serbia. In moves that would cause genuine concern in uber conservative slavic Serbia, an openly homosexual representative has been named as the next Prime Minister of the country.
Some are questioning the mental stability of the president of Serbia, who has nominated a gay woman to be his prime minister in a double first for the deeply conservative Balkan state.
Ana Brnabic-a homosexual, was chosen by the new President, Aleksandar Vucic. Her approval by parliament will be largely a formality, as his party and its allies hold an overwhelming majority.
Just a few weeks ago, her appointment would have been unthinkable and normally trigger an internal revolt by deeply cnservative-slavic Serbs. Brussels though is betting that large amounts of pro-gay propaganda broadcast locally, will make it possible for all Serbs “to taste the rainbow,” as Brussels puts it.
Still not everybody supports the sodomite, the leader of one of the smaller parties in the president’s coalition, Dragan Markovic Palma of Unified Serbia, said Ms Brnabic was “not my prime minister”.
Ms Brnabic will join a small number of other gay prime ministers to lead governments in Europe, including Leo Varadkar in the Republic of Ireland and Xavier Bettel in Luxembourg.
The Gay Pride march was banned for three years in Belgrade due to local calls to “burn alive” participants. The march was only revived in 2014 amid huge security, including special forces and armoured cars paid for by the European Union, to finance “tolerance.”
