Being gay in Kosovo


Gjakova - happy grafitti, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Well not too much to say about being gay in Kosovo except to say that it is done very much in secret as the locals seem to be quite conservative in these matters, for whatever reason...

But we heard that not only was Gjakova the city of bad women but also that all men in Gjakova are gay. Of course, they are not all gay, but apparently in the old days, it was often said that a Gjakovan man would have a boyfriend alongside his wife. The same was true for Prizren, but to a lesser extent and the name has stuck with Gjakova. Apparently.

Not much evidence of homosexuality here, but quite a lot of male-to-male contact, the form of holding hands, putting arms around each other and so on... The main thing is that the people here are very friendly, open and welcoming, a typical Muslim culture, however much or little they obey all the rules of their religion.

Hi. I served in Bosnia, Kosovo and Hungary. I'm heading back to visit a friend that's living in Pristina where she works for the State Department. What's the gay culture like now? Any idea? Coffee shops? bars? Thanks. Ray

I've been in Pristina for 2 months. No sign of any gay community or venues at all.
