Homosexuality was legalized in Azerbaijan in 2000 to join the Council of Europe, however legislative initiatives have not yet been taken to protect the rights of LGBT people. In the society the Soviet influence persists, nevertheless there are some organizations and publications for the collective, and in the capital, Baku, there is certain social permissiveness as long as homosexuality is lived in private. These contrasts had their exponent with the LGBT activist Isa Shahmarli who, without job, without money and without his family (who considered her a sick person), unfortunately ended his life by hanging himself with an LGBT flag.
