Georgia: Bloggers Against Homophobia

Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Armenia, Georgia, Citizen Media, Digital Activism, Gay Rights (LGBT)

Unzipped: Gay Armenia posts a video by Georgian bloggers against homophobia set to the song F*ck You by Lily Allen [1]. The move comes less than a month after a Gay Pride march in Tbilisi, the Georgian capital, was disrupted by priests and conservative elements in society [2]. The same month a gay-friendly bar in neighboring Armenia was firebombed by Neo-Nazis [3] highlighting the problem with intolerance and homophobia in the South Caucasus.
