The First Ever Gay Pride Event in Lebanon

It includes many activities.
May 17, 2017

Lebanon is having the first ever gay pride event this week, a huge step for a country in which homosexuality is frowned upon.

However, this kind of event is different from others; “Beirut Pride will include an exhibition on gender fluidity in fashion as well as a storytelling get-together centered on coming-out stories and a gay-themed party in one of the Middle East's biggest night clubs” according to CNN.

Do you think this event will reduce the rate of homophobia in the country, or could it make it worse? Either way, this is a big step for the Lebanese community.
