By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili has signed an anti-discrimination law.

"Georgia's law 'On elimination of all forms of discrimination' was published in the Legislative Herald on May 7 and correspondingly, entered into force.

The anti-discrimination law was adopted on May 2. The law prohibits discrimination against persons on any grounds, including age, health, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, profession and others. The law prohibits discrimination both in the public and private sectors.

The Georgian Church is against this law, claiming that it legitimizes the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah, condoning sexual minorities.
