  1. I wonder if it’ll make them cross …?

    This should seriously spread. Every Russian embassy in the world should have a rainbow crossing!

      Not just the London Embassy but outside all Russian orthodox churches who are the key players in this. Religion is at the core of all homophobia worldwide long before governments legislated draconian laws.

      1. Totally correct!

    Seriously this should spread to the crossings outside EVERY Russian embassy in the world. This will make them think twice an there wont be a thing they can do about it.

    This is Magic ! If you are suffering from homophobia : Then cross the street, and whoops—you will be cured. But the main question remains—Will the diplomats dare to cross or will they resort to helicopters ? (—Norway )

  5. OK, fellow commenters, how about adding one in London? ;-)

    Notice they’ve put a promo banner on their home page titled “Is Russia Really Anti-LGBT?” that links to the following press release: http://www.rusemb.org.uk/press/1436 . I wonder if anyone feels relieved after reading this “explanation”.

  6. Look at another disgusting NEW video gay teenager tortured by Russian homophobes http://youtu.be/UD7xY6agxAE

      Thank you, Ivan, for mentioning this. It is BAD and extremely negative for Russian politicians. I felt so sorry for this guy, and started crying. Let us all do our best to make life nice for LGBTQ persions in Russia. Best wishes from Helge ( Oslo )
