We arrived in Belgrade on the 11th of October at around 18:00. All the participants were accommodated in a hostel in the center of the city. At 22:00 there was a football match organized by FemSlem and some of our participants also went to play.
The second day was reserved for a workshop together with members of FemSlem. The workshop was on the subject “Sharing experience of LBT sports teams in our countries”. It was held in the office of ERA (LGBTI Equal Rights Association), a network in which both Subversive front and FemSlem are members. The workshop lasted for 2 hours. We had interesting discussions and found out that we have the same problems but approach them differently. As more experienced FemSlem shared some valuable advice for motivating players and some interesting new ideas for the future.
The third day was Gameday. A total of 17 players and some audience participated at the basketball match. The first match was our team Cakana against the team from Belgrade, FemSlem. The match ended with Cakana winning by a small margin. The important thing is that everyone there got a chance to play and everyone was playing fair and having fun. The second match was with mixed teams and more fun. 😊
The last day we had breakfast organized by our host and sightseeing around Belgrade. Departure for Skopje was in the afternoon.
