Donations for a second printing of “My Rainbow Family” poured in after homophobes burned the book in effigy. In January, the LGBT family advocacy group Rainbow Families Croatia announced plans to distribute 500 free copies of “My Rainbow Family” (Moja Dugina Obitelj), a picture book about kids with same-sex parents. Within a few days, all the copies of the book were claimed, and Rainbow Families received hundreds of additional requests. But the book also became the subject of criticism in the Catholic-majority country, where at least one religious group denounced it. On February 4, organizers of an annual family carnival in the coastal town of Kastela set fire to a large cardboard replica of My Rainbow Family in front of hundreds of children and parents. Participants told reporters it was part of a tradition of burning something that “symbolizes evil.”
