"Over the last month the church has said that gay people are destroying Croatia, that they are destroying humankind. They have called us demons and said we are unnatural and against nature”
The church has criticised the curriculum for state primary schools, with sections on sexual minorities and gender roles, proposed by the government. They said it imposes a “gender ideology” upon young children and promotes unnatural lifestyles.
Hundreds of protesters had taken to the street of the Capital.
With the slogan "Kiss your neighbor" and a symbolic kiss in front of the Cathedral of Zagreb protesters said no to this interference and they contrast the derogatory words and the homophobic attacks.
