For the first time, an activist (Lala Aslikyan) brought the LGBT flag with her to an anti-Putin rally in Yerevan on Dec. 2013. I was with her and shared that great responsibility of carrying the flag.

The first part of the story is we got attacked by a few nationalists and chauvinists. My glasses were broken, a few bruises etc. But we did it! And they couldn't take away the flag, although they tried to do that several times, violently.

The second part of the story is we were taken to a police station (there are a few short vids showing that), though we are not sure why. The policemen were crude. But the most interesting part, I think, is that we sue those nationalists now (they are called "Hayazn"), and we got to educate a law enforcement employee on LGBT themes ))) That was fun :)))

He was using wrong terms (like man-addicts), and we taught him the right term (homosexual). I thought about organising educational events and training sessions for them. Sadly I didn't get the chance of suggesting that to him.
