Estonia's Christian Democrats, a party with no seats in the parliament, have asked the Tallinn government to prohibit a gay pride parade in the old city planned for Aug. 12.
"By promoting an unnatural lifestyle homosexuals are putting at risk minors, whom it is not possible to protect against the destructive impact of their propaganda in the densely populated Old City space," the chairman of the Christian Democrats, Aldo Vinkel, told BNS.
"The laws oblige sellers to keep porn and sex publications away from display areas that can be viewed by children. It is evident that live models conveying the same message pose a significantly bigger threat to children," he said.
