A young member of the Socialist Party is the first politically involved Bulgarian to openly acknowledge his homosexuality.

Ivelin Yordanov, 26, works in a non-governmental organization and has committed himself to the fight against discrimination toward homosexual persons, according to reports in local 168 Hours Weekly.

A party which defends different sexual orientations can only win points, says Yordanov, an Economy University graduate from the town of Dobrich.

Like all European left-wing parties the Bulgarian Socialist Party fights for equality and protection of the rights of everyone - be it a homosexual or a member of a minority, Socialist leader Sergey Stanishev comments.
