LGBT Pride Week will be held in Tbilisi from 18-23 June and is organized by Tbilisi Pride. Preparations for the event have already begun, and a preliminary programme of events has been released. However, many have reacted to the news with indignation – the ultra-right has promised it will not allow a gay parade to be held in Tbilisi. Tbilisi Pride says the security of event participants will be managed by state security departments and the authorities: “The state, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and other bodies are responsible for security. For our part, we are doing everything to organize everything so that people have information about current events,” said Giorgi Tabagari in an interview with Tabula.
