AQTOBE, Kazakhstan — More than 100 people have protested in Kazakhstan’s northwestern city of Aqtobe against an event planned by LGBT activists. The protesters said at the August 8 rally that they would hand a petition to the local authorities requesting them “not to allow representatives of a movement that propagates values contradicting our traditions and religion” to enter Aqtobe. Police did not interfere with the unsanctioned rally. A feminist initiative, Feminita, plans to hold a seminar on August 13 on the rights of the LGBT community in the Central Asian nation. Feminita co-founder Gulzada Serzhan told RFE/RL that the group will hold the event despite threats it has received in recent days.
