An American teacher, Joshua Haglund, was killed in Armenia two years ago. The likely reason of the murder was that the guy was gay.

Not surprisingly, the murder was not uncovered. Perhaps, it was done by one of the “cools,” a son of a government official or a mob.

Haglund’s family has also a memorial site in his memory:, and a blog: Those who want to support the Fund, can visit…oker?owner=JOSH.
