LGBTQ propaganda forbidden in Russia



Brussel. This Tuesday, January the 22nd at 12pm, several LGBTQ organizations and their allies will demonstrate in front of the Russian Embassy.

The Russian Federation is about to vote on a law that would ban homosexual propaganda on a national level. Just last year, in Saint Petersburg, a similar proposal successfully passed on a city-wide level.

On the 22nd of January, the Duma will cast the vote and if this new law passes, the Russian Federation will be able to hand out fines up to 12.000 Euro's or sentence jailtime to those LGBTQ organizations and people that in their view are guilty of propaganda. In other words, the work of these organizations will be censored. Furthermore, this would be the end of all anti-discrimination or HIV-prevention

campaigns, it would be the end of all debate about LGBTQ rights-also in schools. A simple kiss in public between 2 LGBTQ individuals would be outlawed. This law proposal is a sincere violation of Human Rights and it gives way to a legitimization of violence against LGBTQ people. We react upon the international call of Russian LGBTQ organizations, with regards to the homophobic violence rife in Russia, with regards to the recent freedom of speech violations that Pussy Riot and many journalists are undergoing. We stand in solidarity and demand that this new legislation doesn't become a reality.
