~~January 26, 2014~~

There is no way that anyone on the face of this earth can tell me that this is right!

There is no way that this is done because it’s god’s mandate. This is simply to powerful controlling the less powerful … this is simply another way of persecution. Government controlling a smaller portion of their population under the guise that “It is what it should be”.

When Russian President Vladimir Putin banned gay “propaganda” in June last year, Russia’s LGBT community went from being a stigmatized fringe group to full-blown enemies of the state. Homophobia becoming legislation means it’s now not only accepted in Russia but actively encouraged, which has led to a depressing rise in homophobic attacks and murders.

The main aim of the law, which essentially bans any public display of homosexuality, is to prevent minors from getting the impression that being gay is normal. Which means that, if you’re young and gay in Putin’s Russia, you’re ostracized and cut off from any kind of legal support network.

In part two we meet 17-year-old activist Nikita who has been labeled a “propagandist” because of his YouTube channel about LGBT rights. Part of his activism deals with teaching young homosexuals how to protect themselves online, particularly against vigilante groups like the neo-Nazi Occupy Pedofilyay who arrange meetings with gay men and teenagers, then make YouTube clips in which they abuse them, using methods ranging from “urine therapy” to fatal assaults.
