Organizers of the Moldova “Gay Pride” group were prevented from marching by city authorities of Chişinău, who threatened them with arrest if they displayed their homosexuality in public. The gays went ahead with their march even when they were assaulted by a mob that shouted insults and threw eggs at the marchers. The gay parade was simply an attempt to place some flowers at a monument in Chişinău which honors Victims of Oppression.
Fortunately, the neighboring city of Tiraspol has offered any gays the right to march, lay flowers and display affection on their city streets.
