International Day Against Homophobia in South Caucasus countries?

As of today, there are no reports or indications as to whether or how the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) will be marked by local LGBT groups or other NGOs in Armenia and Georgia.

(On 17 May 1990, the World Health Organisation (WHO) removed homosexuality from its list of diseases.)

There is only one brief note posted on ILGA-Europe by anonymous "Gay journalist" in Azerbaijan, which says that IDAHO will be marked in Baku "for the first time this year". Meetings by local NGOs, LGBT-themed presentations and anti-homophobia social ads/billboards will be used, according to that report. No other details are provided.
