Russia Bans Gay Pride for the Next 100 Years
This is so scary.
I scan hundreds of headlines every day. And in the last year especially, with more and more progress for gay marriage and gay rights, there is a growing backlash, worldwide, against gays. And I see the tension heating up to alarming levels. From the Republican backlash to the Christian backlash and the extremists who hate gay people. I don’t care what city you live in, please, be alert of your surroundings at all times. There are haters everywhere.
Earlier this year in March, we saw the St. Petersburg laws silencing gay people. Now, just a week after protestors for gay rights were arrested in Moscow, a district court upheld the decision by a Moscow city court to ban gay pride parades for 100 years.
Yes, the government can now legally forbid gay pride for a century, from March 2012 to March 2112.
