The state and the municipality should ban the "children's scene and children's propaganda" at the upcoming gay pride parade in Sofia related to the youngest, the Vazrazhdane youth organization demanded at a press conference at the National Press Club of BTA on Tuesday. They announced that they would refer the matter to the relevant institutions.
"From the publications in the media we understand that this year a children's stage will be erected at the gay parade", said Vazrazhdane youth organization chairman Alexander Alexiev. He pointed out that in 2022 a booklet was distributed to children, in his words, for propaganda purposes.
Deputy chairman of the organization Slavcho Krumov commented that Vazrazhdane stands firmly behind "morality and the traditional family" and declared that they will not allow "young people to be irradiated by this aggressive propaganda that tries to impose Euro-Atlantic values". Krumov added that these values "are not ours".
Another member of the youth organization, Ivanka Lukanova, commented that the school should be protected in every possible way and "gender ideology" should not be allowed in it. She quoted a sixth grade biology textbook, where it was explained that it is normal for a person to feel attraction to his own sex. "We consider such suggestions unacceptable, especially when they are read by children aged 12-13," Lukanova said.
