Moldova, No Gay Demonstrations For You

Thought it would stop at Lithuania’s ban on a Baltic gay pride parade? Nah. “At the mayor’s request, a court in the Moldovan capital of Chisinau on April 28 ruled that leading gay group GenderDoc-M could not stage a May 2 rally in the city center in support of an anti-discrimination law. The court said the rally, the culmination of five days of LGBT pride events, must take place in a secluded park away from downtown, to protect public order and morality. GenderDoc-M refused to abide by the ruling and canceled the demonstration.” [GayToday]
