Since Bulgaria joined the European Union in , it has had to comply with EU human rights standards such as the ban on all forms of negative discrimination, including on the basis of sexual orientation. In fact, since , when the country began negotiations with the EU, it has made tremendous efforts to align its legislation regarding sexual minorities to the European norms and standards. However, non-discrimination is still a far cry from equal rights, and at the moment there are no provisions in Bulgarian law regarding civil unions or marriage for homosexual couples, and co-habiting partners cannot adopt children, nor do they have hospital visitation or inheritance rights. However, gay unions are now recognised in some Eastern European countries, such as Hungary, so it may only be a matter of time before Bulgaria catches up. While other cities in Central and Eastern Europe have been holding tolerance or equality parades in the past few years, Sofia's first official gay parade in was marred by violence from extremists.

Located within walking distance to the north of La Candelaria is Theatron, which was once an old theatre but has now been turned into a venue for partying and live events. Great night out and good value for money. Theatron is a fantastic place to go. My friend invited me to go out with her gay friends and I went ahead and accepted.
