For the first time EVER, a rainbow flag was waived high at a protest
in Armenia today. Activists were protesting Putin’s official state visit and
the Armenian governments decision to join the Russian led Customs
Union. After the march, Lala (the activist holding the flag) was followed by police and arrested with 2 other activists. They were released after being detained for a few hours.
According to the Director of PINK Armenia, the same flag participated in Genocide memorial day protests in front of the Turkish Embassy in Paris showing that there are also LGBT Armenians living in France and they have the same demands.
