Pristina - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for LGBT expatriates? Why or why not?

Seems pretty tolerant. - Aug 2021

I think efforts are being made, and it is growing in its education with regards to LGBT issues and understanding. - Jun 2016

Yes with a caveat. There is acceptance of non-Kosovars being gay, but very limited acceptance of LGBT people in the local community. - Aug 2015

Not openly; it's generally frowned upon by the local culture and there was a recent attack on an LGBT group. Things are changing, albeit very slowly. - Jun 2014

It depends. There is a growing awareness among the local culture and some acceptance, but there is a large negative cultural bias. There was a recent violent demonstration when Kosovo 2.0 magazine launched one of its quarterly issues addressing the concerns of the LGBT community. - Apr 2013

Kosovars are still homophobic, but there is a large international community so the gay community seemed to be OK. - Sep 2012
