TO opposition, however, did not participate in the debatesconsidering that it is not necessary to approve a law against what the Government considers “LGTBI propaganda”, an acronym for Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender and Intersex.

Therefore, they insisted on the need to address the “real problems” of the Georgian population in terms of education and gender violence.

The bill proposed by the ruling Georgian Dream party includes bans on same-sex marriage, adoption by same-sex couples and sex change operations, among other issues.

Furthermore, it aims ban schools of providing information that could be interpreted as “propaganda in favor of incest and same-sex relationships.”

The Russian government has approved similar measures against what the Kremlin considers “propaganda against traditional values” in the country.
