Gay News from Adult Filmmaker Michael Lucas

  Following the release of “Kings Of New York 2” featuring the illustrious Tanning Mom,
gay porn mogul Michael Lucas has set his sights on a more serious issue
deeply affecting his home country: the climate of fear and violence
plaguing Russia’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)

Adult filmmaker Michael Lucas has long used his fame as a platform to speak out about causes
he holds near and dear, and as a Russia-born gay man it’s unsurprising
that his next project is a full-length documentary that will raise more
awareness for the atrocities being committed against LGBT people in his
native country.

Lucas is trying to  raise funds to complete the film titled The Campaign of Evil: Russia and Gay Propaganda with a Kickstarter campaign. He explains why this is a passion project for him….

Since growing up as a confused gay child in the former
Soviet Union, it has been my dream to show the world a vision of what it
is like to be a member of the LGBT community in my former homeland.

As most of the world moves forward toward gay equality, Russia is
seemingly heading backward. Antigay sentiment and legislation are
spreading rapidly throughout the country. Earlier this year, the Russian
parliament passed a ban on so-called “gay propaganda” that effectively
makes nearly any public discussion of gay equality a crime. The city of
Moscow has outlawed Gay Pride parades for the next 100 years. Adoption
of Russian children is forbidden to citizens of any foreign country that
permits gay marriage. 

And legislation is now being considered that
would permit the Russian government to remove gay people’s children from
their homes. The Kremlin has chosen the LGBT community as its scapegoat
in a populist campaign against supposedly decadent “Western” values,
and there are ominous signs of much worse to come. Violent attacks
against Russian gays or suspected gays are more and more common. Videos
of young LGBT people being taunted and tortured have been widely
distributed on the Internet.
