The first anti-violence LGBTIQ protest in the Arab World

Hundreds of people armed with rainbow flags and signs denouncing violence and discrimination gathered on the 22nd of February 2009 at the crossroads of Sodeco in Beirut to protest against violence targeting homosexuals and other minority groups in Lebanon. The event, the first of its kind in the Arab world according to the organizers, was staged by the Beirut-based (LGBTIQ) support organization Helem.
