Skopje - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Yes, I think it's okay. - Jun 2023

I think Skopje is okay for LGBT folks- not the best but certainly not the worst. There is discrimination against LGBTs in Macedonia (and the region in general) but that is slowly changing. There was a gay couple at the Embassy when I was there and they did not experience any direct discrimination. - Aug 2019

It's ok. It's safe to be LGBT here, but gay marriage is not legal and there might be some dirty looks and even comments. It seems among younger people, it's no big deal. - Jan 2019

The LGBT community is still very discriminated against here. - Sep 2016

Doubtful - May 2016

Maybe - not sure. - May 2014

I have no real experience with this but I suspect that it would be fine. - Oct 2013

Not sure. I would imagine that it is a fairly tolerant place, but the two major religions there (Muslim and Greek Orthadox) would probably not support this lifestyle. - Sep 2013

There is still a fair bit of prejudice against LGBTs here in Macedonia. - Jun 2013

Not a comfortable city for LGBT folks. - Mar 2012

Not to my knowledge. - Mar 2009
