Whilst visiting Bulgaria with my Bulgarian girlfriend I discovered that it definitely isn't England. However - we did hold hands sometimes in Sofia, and although we got some looks that was it. In her small home town we didn't, but this was more for personal reasons. However there, even though we weren't showing any public affection my girlfriend was stared at for how she looks, not outlandish just a bit boyish. Over there the gender identities are very traditional. We know some younger friends over there who have come out, and the parents, although not happy haven't rejected them. However another Bulgarian friend living in England who just came out to his sister back in Bulgaria got told he should go to the doctor. There is much work to be done, but it's not as bad as Russia....yet.

Some men where upfront rude and made comments like: "- Are you boyfriend and girlsfriend? Ha ha ha!"
