LGBT march in Odesa - no, no way
Gay pride was banned by local court due to possible provocations
Some negative reaction on this event was observed among the locals, what increased the risks and likelihood of violence to participants. At the same time, football matches were scheduled for Aug 14 and 16 what would mean that march could present a real danger for those who join the march. To assure safety both of participants and other members of the public.
The organizers say that over 200 people, including foreigners, have registered for the Festival and they are adamant that it will take place. They have, however, encountered other disturbing problems with people refusing to rent out venues for the events.
The gay pride in Kyiv was not yielded as well, and ended with far right incursion causing human casualties among police officers.
As was reported before, LGBT intolerance (together with religious hatred, vandalism, and racial hate crimes) is the most frequent xenophobic actions in last 6 month in Ukraine.
