Bulgaria’s bent boys and girls came out to show their pride this weekend. Unfortunately for them, however, a group of anti-gay activists, most of them skinheads, also took to the streets, but with an entirely different mission: destruction.
Eighty-eight people have been arrested for trying to attack participants in Bulgaria’s first-ever gay pride march, the interior ministry said Sunday.
They include Nationalist Union leader Boyan Rasate, who faces legal proceedings for hooliganism, the ministry said, after he launched a campaign against Saturday’s march and urged people to openly resist it.
The march came under attack from nationalists and skinheads who were seen booing the small procession and throwing rocks, firecrackers and at least one petrol bomb at it.
Tsk, tsk. Don’t these people know how expensive gas is these days?!
