Bucharest

Anti-gay protesters have notoriously interrupted Bucharest’s annual GayFest, a week-long gay pride festival that first occurred in 2004. In 2007, hundreds of demonstrators threw tomatoes, stones, eggs and trash at the festival participants, hoping to stop their marching. More than 700 riot police used tear gas to fend off and arrest the dissenters.
