“The head of “Armenian Socialist Movement” political party Robert Aharoyan, who actively fights against LGBT community and LGBT activists is in fact gay. The video attached talks itself screening him contacting gays for sex in a gay dating web site. R. Aharoyan regularly appears in media commenting on various aspects of public interest. Despite some 1.5 months ago some photos on his sexual orientation appeared on the web, he carried on homophobic speech and activities.
More specifically, on November 6 he hold a rally in front of the EU Delegation office in Armenia with several young man burning the LGBT flag as an open protest towards EU’s equality policies. The fact that Robert Aharonyan is famous public figure and regularly spreads hate speech and other hurtful activities towards specific strata of a society lead us to publicise this video taking into account the public interest on the issue.
Also, there are some presumptions, that Robert Aharoyan and his team, are manipulating with the gays whom dated via web sites by making them join his activities threatening they will talk about the latters’ sexual orientation”.
