    Unfortunately the Russian media will be banned from reporting this so we’re just pissing into the wind. We need our politicians to put more pressure on, more direct action that will affect the Russian economy and Government and more communication with the Russian LGBT community on how to tackle it.

    1. Incorrect. Articles reporting on this will have an “18+” banner on the internet, that is all so far.
      But yes, we need more direct action

  2. From Canada with love <3

  3. We should put pressure on our own government, and also our media, especially the BBC to repost on whatis happening. We should encourage artists – rock groups, DJs who perform and have a following in Russia, to show solidarity. For instance, those artists performing at Kubana this week, e.g.http://www.theprodigy.com/the-prodigy-gigs/the-prodigy-tour-dates

  4. The more I read stuff like this the more I realise being attracted to men does not make me gay. Why doesn’t this happen when people are persecuted in the carribbean. Truly pathetic people
