Homosexuality has been legal in Croatia since 1977 and is tolerated but not widely accepted. Public displays of affection between same-sex couples may be met with hostility.
Gay venues are virtually nonexistent outside Zagreb. However, many towns on the coast have an unofficial gay beach – usually a rocky area at the edge of the nudist section.
Zagreb Pride (www.zagreb-pride.net) Usually held on the second Saturday in June.
Split Pride (www.facebook.com/lgbt.pride.split) Also in June.
LORI (www.lori.hr) Lesbian organisation based in Rijeka.
