    Community members and activists held the first-ever LGBTQ Pride march in Odessa, Ukraine, this past weekend, according to NBC News. 

    Authorities in Odessa banned the event the day before, and officials also prohibited outdoor events in the city during the time the march was supposed to take place. 

    Organizers eventually convinced authorities to allow the march, with police protecting the safety of those who took part. 

    A group of about 20 radical youth protesters tried to break through an area cordoned off by police in an attempt to disrupt the event. The police knocked them to the ground with batons. The LGBTQ participants were taken to a safe place.

    Florida deputies have arrested a 24-year-old Naples man who allegedly hid under the bed of his 11-year-old neighbor and left her a sexually explicit note.

    Authorities took David Hanggigoble into custody for stalking after the girl and her mother explained how Hanggigoble's actions had escalated during recent days.

    The victim said she was in the bathroom getting ready for school. When she came out, she saw Hanggigoble hiding under the bed. She ran from her room and called her mother. Her mother then contacted the sheriff's office and came home.
