How to say gay in Armenian
Below are the words of our Armenian Gay Dictionary that we will expand in new editions. If you know any more, please, contact us. But first some information about the language and where it is spoken.
The Armenian language is an Indo-European language. It is the official language in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as having a significant presence in neighboring countries (Russia, Syria, Turkey, Iran and Georgia). It is also spoken in other countries where there is presence of Armenia Diaspora (France, Syria, Lebanon, Greece, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Uruguay, Canada and the United States, particularly in Los Angeles and New York).
The situation of LGBT people in Armenia is delicate, since, despite the abolition of the law that prohibited homosexual behavior and the recognition of foreign equal marriage, the Soviet influence persists in society, where 50% affirm that they would feel indifference to the aggression to a homosexual person. This homofobia is evident in indulgence of the authorities in pursuing aggression and crimes.
We especially acknowledge the help of Kara and Jon in the realization of this dictionary.
