On Monday, there was another gay-bashing in Armenia, this time against a member of Right Side NGO, a trans activism organization. Max Yarzhapetyan was walking on the street in Yerevan, the capital and largest city, when three men started to follow him, swear at him, and hurl homophobic slurs. Yarzhapetyan called the police as the men persisted. The men asked him if he was Armenian, to which he replied yes. He was soon beaten and thrown onto the road, into traffic.
