Hundreds of gay rights activists took to the streets in Sofia, Bulgaria to rally for LGBT rights.

Pink News reports:

The demonstrators walked peacefully through the capital city, and were protected by hundreds of police officers following calls from extremist groups to stop the event. Revellers displayed colourful banners which called for love, equality and sexual diversity. Slogans against Russian anti-gay laws introduced earlier this year were chanted, and To Russia With Love signs were carried by marchers.

Bulgaria’s a difficult place to be gay – we salute those brave souls who are coming out publicly to try to change that.
