On 5 July 2021, anti-LGBT protesters attacked LGBT activists and journalists in the capital Tbilisi ahead of a planned “March for Dignity” Pride march. Tbilisi Pride, which organized the Pride march, canceled the event after anti-LGBT protesters stormed and vandalized the organization’s offices. According to local media, an assailant stabbed and injured a foreign national on Kosta Khetagurovi street in an alleged homophobic attack. Police officers immediately arrested the assailant at the scene of the attack. Additionally, protesters attacked at least 47 journalists covering the protests. Following the attacks, 18 Western embassies, including the U.S. Embassy, issued a joint statement condemning the violence and the Georgian government’s failure to prevent the violence.
