IDAHO Armenia - 17 May: Rainbow balloons will fly over Yerevan as a symbolic move to combat homophobia and transphobia

On 17 May 2010 (IDAHO - International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia) gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, their parents and children, friends and peers in many cities around the world will let the colorful balloons fly in the sky as a symbolic move to combat homophobia.
For the first time ever, this year PINK Armenia joined the international RainbowFlash event, with the support of volunteers and friends we will organise a flashmob with balloons. Colorful balloons will fly in the sky as a symbolic move to combat hate, ignorance and intolerance, to combat homophobia and transphobia.

You are more than welcome, PINK Armenia. Very proud to have you all as my friend. You are doing an amazing work. Keep it up. I hope we will have more such positive colourful news and my blog will contain as few negative news as possible. Fingers crossed, everything will pass the way we all hope and want, and can't wait to see pics and may be video afterwards.
