Director of Montenegro’s LGBT rights group verbally abused while filming TV interview

When the first openly gay man in Montenegro returned to his hometown for a TV interview he was met by a chorus of verbal abuse.

Zdravko Cimbaljevic was back in Niksic after a year and a half to be interviewed by a Serbian TV channel.

Despite being surrounded by plain clothes police officers, several dozen people shouted profanities and derogatory comments to Cimbaljevic, who is the director of LGBT Forum Progress, a gay rights group in Montenegro.
