Activists in Belarus have reported a series of raids on gay clubs, following an LGBT rights group’s attempt to register for official recognition as an NGO.
Siarhiej Androsienka, the chair of GayBelarus, said that following the application police raided Club 6A, a gay club in Minsk, on January 11. Clubbers were lined up against a wall and videotaped stating their names, addresses, and occupations.
