Over 2,000 people gathered for the 5th annual Sofia Gay Pride, which is taking place in the Bulgarian capital Saturday.

LGBT people, as well as heterosexual citizens, joined the event to express their desire for equal rights to all, and to protest against continuing discrimination against people of differing sexual orientations in Bulgaria.

The rally, which includes a march through central Sofia, and a concert later Saturady evening, is going on without any conflicts or violence.
