The 6th annual LGBT parade Sofia Pride took place on the central streets of the Bulgarian capital Saturday.

This year, the rally was led by a truck carrying a sign reading "To Russia with Love."

The gay pride was announced to include a protest against recently adopted legislation in Russia which incriminates "gay propaganda."

Saturday Sofia Pride participants also commemorated the 2008 death of a Bulgarian youngster who was killed in an anti-gay hate attack in Sofia.

This year's LGBT rally in Sofia however saw dwindling numbers, with only about 200 people joining it.
