According to media reports, some 1,000 people attended the concert in Beirut's Hamra area to show solidarity with the band Mashrou' Leila who were due to perform on 09 August at the Byblos International Festival. The Mashrou' Leila concert was canceled last week after pressure from Christian groups against the festival and the band. Hamed Sinno, the lead singer of the Lebanese alternative rock band Mashrou' Leila, is openly gay and the songs of the group back LGBT rights. EPA-EFE/WAEL HAMZEH
