  •    Introducing yet another bigot – Armenian doctor MP Karen Avagyan   

    Armenian doctor MP from the ruling Republican party, member of the parliamentary Health Care Committee Karen Avagyan’s interview with Aravot daily:

    “It’s true, the existence of sexual minorities is not accepted by our society although there are such people in this very society. Regardless of whatever documents our country signs, whatever actions are conducted, acceptance will not get materialised, and thanks God that it won’t. This conservatism is very necessary for us. I may well have acquaintances with such people too without knowing that they are such people, but if I knew, I won’t have any relations/contacts with them.”
