Tbilisi Pride

Tbilisi Pride is a civic movement which opposes homo/transphobia and aims to contribute to forming the environment, where LGBT people are protected, accepted, free and equal with the other citizens of Georgia. The movement carries out media campaigns, advocates for policy changes and organizes annual pride week.

Human rights defenders in Georgia are often subjected to physical attacks, threats and insults, defamation, and slander. In most cases, these forms of intimidation are levelled against those who protect and promote the rights of migrants and members of national, religious, or sexual minorities, as well as those working on politically sensitive cases and in remote areas where they have almost no opportunities for protection.
