Well, in Russia, it’s no fun for the LGBTQ community!
Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated in a recent interview his intention to prohibit marriage equality in the Russian constitution with an amendment.
Russia is anti-LGBTQ as you know. The anti-LGBTQ “propaganda” law adopted in 2013 prevents any public existence of our community without fear of arrests and there is increasing violence against LGBTQ+ people.
President Vladimir Putin recently held a press conference, as there may soon be changed in the Russian constitution. They mentioned LGBTQ rights during this conference, and this is what they said:
Yulia Tsvetkova, Yelena Grigoryeva, and Yekaterina Lysikh are proud of being LGBTQ women. Recently, all three were victims of violence, and one of them did not recover from it.
