Hetq article on challenges faced by gay people in modern Armenia

For all those who know Armenian, I recommend reading today’s article published in Hetq (online journal of Investigative Journalists of Armenia). Shushan Harutyunyan describes life and struggle of several gay Armenians and their ways of adjusting to life in a society which still views gays as “enemy of nation” and where homophobia is widespread.

Original article in Armenian is available here; for English version (published 6 August), see here

I re-posted the English version of the article with some commentary here
