There were many guests invited from different organizations and countries. During the event the president of NGO gave short information on PINK’s program and policy, presented the main activities, successes and future plans.We collaborate with local and international human rights related and other relevant NGOs, as well as some governmental agencies, particularly, the Norwegian Embassy in Moscow and the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs.

PINK Information Center has began developing a library of relevant literature, leaflets, booklets, CDs/DVDs, educational materials in Armenian, Russian, English, other languages which we intend to expand into a comprehensive and useful source of information on LGBT related issues, STI prevention (with the special attention to HIV/AIDS) and so on. Any help in this regard or other support for PINK’s activities will be highly appreciated.

Actually we don't have that "gay" agreement with the government. The main topic of collaboration is sexual health

I am excited to see a gay and lesbian organization in Yerevan. I'm american and these sorts of centers were vital to my coming- out. Congratulations and Good Health!!
