Day Against Homophobia in Tbilisi, Georgia

Good to see signs of revival from the Inclusive Foundation, LGBT NGO, in Georgia.

Below is activist video from Tbilisi to mark the International Day Against Homophobia.

And here is a photo report via Civil.ge:

"In what appeared to be probably the first-ever outdoor gay-related event in Georgia, few dozen of people gathered in Tbilisi's old town to commemorate International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, marked on May 17. The event was organized by one of the few Georgian LGBT rights group, Association Inclusive. Homosexuality, which was decriminalized in Georgia in 2000, is generally regarded as “immoral” and remains a taboo topic and closeted in Georgia."

"Candlelit fake flowers, painted in colors of rainbow gay pride flag were released and floated down the river Mtkvari by gay rights activists and other participants of the event in memory of victims of homophobic hate crimes."
