Mr. Hans Glaubitz, Dutch Ambassador to Estonia, is forced to leave his post after a year of ongoing gay hatred and racism against his partner, who is originaly from Cuba and black. The ambassador acknowlegded good treatment by the Estonian government, but said that the society was not ready for gay couples, especially not when one of them is black. (Dutch link).

It was known up front that the gay relationship might become a problem, since ultra right winged theories are reasonably popular in all Baltic countries. As far as I know the Baltics are the only place in the world where Waffen SS veteran’s are allowed to walk a yearly victory march (July 16th, if I’m correct).
