Belgrade Nightlife

Even from six time zones away, Serbia never ceases to piss me off.

After reading for weeks about crazy stuff like neo-nazis, the latest news was more personal.

On Friday, two of our closest friends got beaten up, one pretty badly from what I understand, in the very center of Belgrade. They were at a gay club where they met a couple of “nice guys” who offered that they go somewhere else or for a walk. Once outside, some more “nice guys” showed up from behind and together they beat up our unsuspecting friends.

Just, HOW and WHY anyone gets so enraged by someone else’s choice of sexual partners, to pay admission to a club, pretend to be gay, just to pick someone up and cowardly beat him with a group of his like-frustrated buddies, is something I don’t think I will ever be able to comprehend. I guess nothing proves you’re a tough Serbian male better than attacking an outnumbered opponent from the back.

It happens a lot lately, so I've heard - it happened to a friend of mine too, couple of weeks ago - I think some group of morons is actually doing this what you said - organizing 'sachekushe'.

That is unbelievable. I can't understand the mentality of people who do these things ... Hopefully they are recovering and have plenty of support!

So I know I'm posting way after the fact, but I just stumbled upon your blog and had to comment... I'm an American living in Novi Sad (so kind of your opposite I supose), and we just had a gay club open here a little while ago that's been forced to put a huge "private party" sign on the front door and hire 2 bouncers for a ridiculously small venue to keep this sort of stuff from happening. So far it seems they haven't had any problems, but it still does make you a little wary going there.

Hope you're enjoying New York!
