Dates: May 2013 - June 2013
Project objective: To explore public attitudes towards homosexuals and reactions towards May 17th events, during which two demonstrations – one for the International Day Against Homophobia and another against homosexuality — ended with the participants of the latter violently overwhelming the participants of the former.

For the first time in CRRC’s history, face-to-face interviews were conducted using computer tablets instead of paper questionnaires, resulting in 542 completed interviews through computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI).
