Members of LGBT community damaged icons in the Church of St. Catherine in Thessaloniki, when marking the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) on 17 May.
The Mayor of Thessaloniki, Yiannis Boutaris, has been attacked due to issuing a permit for conducting a gay pride.
Actually, the attack on the Mayor of Thessaloniki was not associated with the LGBT community. The reason behind the attack carried out by Greek ultra-nationalists was him attending a genocide-related event. The material by Ipress misleads the reader by portraying that the Western society allegedly answers the support of LGBT community by politicians with violence. Further debunking by Myth Detector.
