An attack on a homosexual took place in Baku. This was reported to Minority Azerbaijan by the victim himself.

According to him, the incident took place in the evening of May 31 in the Yasamal district of the capital. The victim was initially verbally abused by two unknown individuals. After talking about the victim's earrings and appearance, they grabbed his shirt from behind and attacked him. The victim said that one of the perpetrators hit him in the arm with a wine glass. As a result, his arm slipped, he lost his balance and fell to the ground. After that, unknown people fled the scene.
