Georgia: proposed bill threatens the country’s LGBTQIA+ community

The former Soviet country of Georgia has seen many challenges for the LGBTQIA+ community since the USSR collapsed in 1991. Homophobic politicians, pride march bans and violence.
Now the current ruling party is proposing a bill that could see bans on changing gender, same sex couples from adopting children, and the barring of public celebrations of same-sex relationships. But is this a serious threat, or a preelection storm in a tea cup?
Giorgi Tabagari is the former executive director of Tbilisi Pride. With his long-standing history of activism for LGBTQIA+ rights and visibility in Georgia, he gives us an insight on the impact of the proposed bill and the threat to the LGBTQIA+ community in Georgia.
