May 17: the day of Armenian fears

While in cities like Riga, Kiev and Moscow, LGBT demonstrations are being blocked by authorities, in more than 50 countries in the world there are activities to celebrate the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia.
There is every reason to have a day against homophobia and transphobia: 80 countries in the world consider homosexuality illegal, 5 of them punish homosexual acts by death.
We don't speak about Armenia even. It is not illegal here and there is no punishment by law but still society and authorities are homophobic, they have their methods to punish those people.
Such kind of fears and phobias are result of acknowledgement and lack of information.

America and Europe approved guys love why? Because they have respect mind and relations for all people. They now, that every person have a free choice to have a life how he/she want. Even Armenia not have a law for guys open love, it is not mean that guys can not and should not love each other and be together.The law of Armenia can not control Yerevan citizens to do that what they want. They think if they in high position it is mean they are leader of peoples. No, it is not so. And every one should and must show this leaders that I am person and have my free choice and I can have life so how I want. The leaders work not controlling citizens social, personal, educational and other activity life. They responsibility is create normal and peaceful life for citizens.
