Armenia: Online Petition to Support LGBT Rights

Following the recent firebombing of a gay-friendly bar in Yerevan as well as homophobic comments from government officials and politicians setting the scene for the aggressive disruption of a diversity rally in the Armenian capital two weeks later, Unzipped draws its readers attention to a new online petition calling for the constitutional rights of the country's LGBT community to be respected. The blog says the move is ‘historic’ and notes that it is co-sponsored by many prominent ethnic Armenians such as renowned Canadian filmmaker Atom Egoyan and American actor Eric Bogosian. The online petition can be signed here.
