Bigot Pride in photos: Georgian Gay Pride march cut short after violent protest by hatted and hairy straights
IN Georgia, being gay is difficult. Today there was an anti-gay pride rally, in Tbilisi, Georgia. You might call it bigot pride. Thousands of anti-gay protesters, including Orthodox priests, occupied a central street in Georgia’s capital Friday, with some threatening to lash with nettles any participant in a gay pride parade which was to take place there. The gay parade was to feature around 50 marchers. Police in Tbilisi guarded the gay activists and bused them out of the city center shortly after they arrived at the gathering. In other words, they were rounded up and booted out of town.

Georgian church clergymen and activists arrive. Linking arms, dressing the same and liking hats are signs of hardcore heterosexuality.
Leather waistcoat: model’s own.
No. These are not the gays. These are straights wearing “traditional Georgian hats”, of a type favoured by Twiggy in the late 1960s and Harry Enfield and Chums in the 1990s. Calm Down! Calm Down!
