First Gay Pride For Montenegro

OMG OMG!  This can only be the handiwork of my true love, Prince Boris.

The small, conservative country of Montenegro has begun its bid to enter the European Union by ensuring that its gay activists can hold their very first Pride celebration.  They have acknowledged that the rally will be the target of violent extremists and have pledged a heavy police presence to protect the marchers.

"'It is precisely known, in accordance with the law, how certain rallies are organized and how security standards are provided,' Lukšić pointed out, adding that the Montenegrin society “needs to cross the line” at some point in order to prove that it accepts all differences.'

"'Whether we personally accept them or not, whether we personally have one opinion or the other, let that remain our personal thought, but we must face the fact that there are differences in the society, that those issues are a part of the human rights corpus. Let the people take a walk and we will show that we are civilized,' the Montenegrin PM concluded."

This is pretty rad.  I'm counting down the days to when I fly to Podgorica and wed my Prince.  I'm really just in it for the tiara.  I get a tiara, RIGHT BORIS?!
