LGBTQ activists were forced to call off a pride march on July 5 in Tbilisi after opponents attacked activists and journalists and after the Georgian government and the Georgian Orthodox Church spoke out against the event. At least 50 journalists were attacked by mobs at different locations, including two RFE/RL reporters.
