Pride Parade In Bulgaria's Sofia Goes Off Without A Hitch

BulgariaPrideDespite calls for violence from nationalist and conservative religious leaders and one small skirmish, gay pride went swimmingly in Sofia, Bulgaria, yesterday.

From Christian Science Monitor:

Organizers said yesterday's parade, the biggest yet held in Bulgaria, is a step forward in highlighting the importance of tolerance for the gay community, but that there is a long way to go in broadening acceptance of homosexuals in society in the region.

“Everything was perfect,” says Marko Markov, one of the parade organizers. “For four consecutive years there has been no violence at all at the parade itself, though we were very concerned this year. The far right is very loud but they know they can’t harm us.”

…One participant had been attacked in the center of Sofia after the march, but was rescued by passers-by.

No doubt the 600 police officers sent to the event, which drew about 1,500 to 2,000 pro-gay people, including ambassadors from the United States and England, helped dissuade the 200 counter protesters from getting too rowdy.

  6. In the early years of the previous century, Press Releases were done through the news and print media, radio, etc. In the last decade of the previous century, with the boom in the use of Internet, Online Press Releases caught on, giving birth to the Online Press Release Services and Press Release Distribution Services industry. This industry is booming today because the Internet is accessible all over the world and not limited to a certain area, country, or continent. An Online Press Release issued by a company in the USA can be seen and read by any individual, anywhere in the world, at any time. The world today has become a global village and that is why it is important for a company to be known and recognized all over the world, and not just in its own area, country, or continent.
