PostSubject: The crack down on gays in Russia   Sun Jul 14, 2013 1:34 pm

Homophobia is alive and well in Russia, and is even supported by the law. Russia passed a law this year banning the dissemination of "gay propaganda" and parades in favor of gay rights.

Lawmakers have accused gays of decreasing Russia’s already low birth rates and said they should be barred from government jobs, undergo forced medical treatment or be exiled.

Anything considered pro-gay, from gay-affirmative speech, to gays holding hands in public, to even wearing rainbow suspenders is now illegal.

With Russia's new anti-gay "propaganda" ban now in effect thanks to being approved by the Russian Upper House and signed into law by President Putin, travel site Skift now warns that gays traveling to Russia could face being jailed for up to two weeks before being deported from the country.


A gay rights activist is detained in St. Petersburg on May 1. The city's new law criminalizes "public behavior that promotes sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality and trans-genderism among minors."

Police detain a man dressed in a bridal gown during an attempted gay rights rally in Moscow.
According to a recent survey by the well-respected Levada Center, fully 62 percent of Russians condemn homosexuality.
