GALAS Appears on ARTN/Shant Armenian TV

On Saturday, February 4th and Sunday February 5th, GALAS President Armen Abelyan and one of GALAS’ founding members, MFT Biayna Hairapetian appeared on 2 episodes of ARTN/Shant Armenian TV’s “Introspective” show discussing LGBTQ issues in Armenian communities. This informative interview/discussion is a critical step in bringing visibility to the LGBTQ Armenians among the larger, mainstream Armenian communities as we move towards full equality for all.

GALAS thanks ARTN/Shant TV, introspective show host Varditer Grigorian and Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health liaison Anna Yaralian (clinical psychologist at LACDMH) for providing this opportunity.
