Some good news out of Albania – the country’s Parliament just approved protections for the LGBT community. Gay Star News reports:

Albania amended its criminal code and put hate crimes against sexual orientation and gender identity on par with an offense against gender, race, ethnicity, religious belief, disability and so on. It also passed a new law punishing the dissemination of homophobic information through any means (including the internet) by a fine and up to two years imprisonment.

Nice to see a homophobia propaganda ban instead of a homosexuality propaganda one, for a change.
