A clampdown on the LGBTQ community in Russia has reportedly intensified during the war in Ukraine. A new law was passed banning almost any queer-friendly information there, labeling it as “gay propaganda”. For LGBTQ activist Piotr Voskresensky, it's as if queer people were being deleted from society. Fearing for his freedom, he decided to leave the country.

A crackdown against the LGBT+ community in Russia has intensified after a new law was passed by the Russian Parliament. The bill, which passed in December, places restrictions on almost any mention of LGBT people or culture. Vladimir Putin has said that Russia is not only fighting Ukraine on the battlefield, but also "Western" values. During a speech in the Kremlin to mark the illegal annexation of four Ukrainian regions, the president lashed out at the West and LGBT rights, calling them "pure Satanism".

I also have a twitter account 🤍 Thank you to Sasha, Tanya, Masha, Kelsa and Andrew ❤️ Russia, which is, sadly, the country I come from, has a law, the so-called “gay propaganda” law, according to which, if you publicly imply that being queer is good or normal you can be fined. This law has been in action since 2013, but it’s important to talk about it now because it’s just been amended and become a lot worse, and secondly because, right now, the kremlin is trying to reframe the war in ukraine as basically a war against queerness. This video is about the way governments – well, one specific government – uses vulnerable groups as a kind of political red herring, why the kremlin chose to use queer people this way rather than any other minority group and what all of this means for queer people in russia.
It's been almost two months since Russian President Vladimir Putin signed into law a regulation that bans so-called LGBT-propaganda in Russia. It prohibits what it calls promotion of 'non-traditional values'. The change has already affected a wide range of books and films, with now-illegal material being removed. Critics say that this is just one more step in what the Russian government sees as a fight against Western values.

Subscribe to VICE News now: 🤍 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 1 we get a ride with Artem, a young driver for Moscow's gay taxi service "Our Taxi", meet Nikita, a 17-year-old activist who has been labeled a "propagandist" because of his LGBT rights YouTube channel, and Yulia, a young lesbian who started LGBT self defense classes after her favorite gay bar in Moscow was attacked by about 20 armed men in October 2012.

Yevgeny Voitsekhovsky and Pavel Stotsko aren't just a married gay couple — they were the first married gay couple in Russia after their January marriage was officially recognized by a government official. But their bliss was short lived, and they were quickly forced to flee the country in fear for their lives. The couple has been staying ever since in a small town in the Netherlands, where they spoke exclusively to VICE News. Although gay marriage is illegal in Russia, Voitsekhovsky and Stotsko took advantage of a loophole earlier this year after discovering the government recognizes foreign marriages. The couple wed in Denmark in January, seven years after they first started dating. On their return to Russia, they took their internal passports to a government office to be officially registered. To their surprise, registering at the municipality office went off without a hitch. “They just took our marriage certificate and stamped our passports,” Pavel Stotsko told VICE News. “At the time, the woman that did it saw that there are two men before her, but she wasn't in any way shocked. She acted by the order they have that marriage registered abroad is recognized in Russia". The trouble came afterward, when the couple went on television to talk about their status as Russia’s first married gay couple. Over the next few days, they say, they were harassed by police and had their domestic passports containing their marriage stamps confiscated and canceled. On the advice of lawyers — and with the financial support of LGBT activists — Voitsekhovsky and Stotsko fled to Amsterdam, without even saying goodbye to their family. They declared themselves as asylum seekers to police at Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport, and have been living as refugees ever since. Last week, after six months of uncertainty and adjustment to life in a place very different to Russia, they received their permanent resident cards. “We went to gay parade in Amsterdam and there we could hold hands in public for the first time in the street because we saw same sex couples — females, males — who were also walking holding hands without any problems,” said Yevgeny Voitsekhovsky. “No one was abusing them by shouting insults behind their backs. No one was threatened physically. We know that we are in a safe environment.” Subscribe to VICE News here: 🤍 Check out VICE News for more: 🤍 Follow VICE News here: Facebook: 🤍 Twitter: 🤍 Tumblr: 🤍 Instagram: 🤍 More videos from the VICE network: 🤍

Rights groups express concern as Russian President Vladimir Putin signs a law banning all gender affirming procedures, including reassignment surgery, hormone treatments, and changes to gender identity in official documents and public records. The law also voids marriages where a spouse has transitioned and prohibits transgender people from fostering or adopting children. Advocacy groups fear a potential increase in suicides due to this move. The legislation passed without opposition in Russia's parliament, the Duma, and its sponsors justify it as a measure to safeguard Russia's traditions and family values from Western influence.

"The problem of sexual minorities in Russia [...] has been a deliberate exaggeration aimed at making an enemy image of Russia for political considerations.

Part two of Charlie's interview with the Russian leader will air tonight on PBS.
Russia's lower house of parliament approved a bill on Thursday that would widen its ban on so-called "LGBT propaganda," and "demonstration" of LGBTQ behaviour. Under the original ban, any action or information that was considered an attempt to promote homosexuality, whether in public, online or in films, books or advertising, to children would incur a heavy fine. However, the updated law would outlaw promotion of LGBTQ lifestyles aimed at all ages. Critics say it was part of Russia's "war" with the "unified West for traditional values." Ksenia Mikhailova, a lawyer with Russian LGBTQ support organization "Coming Out," also raised caution that the expansion of the ban would "outlaw every person who 'comes out.'" The bill would still need approval of the upper house of parliament and President Vladimir Putin before coming into force.

Around 60 people with placards calling for LGBT rights to be respected and waving rainbow-coloured flags had gathered in the city centre, said activist and co-organiser Aleksei Nazarov. Each participant demonstrated alone, a ruse to avoid the protest being classified as a gathering, which would have made it subject to the city's prior approval. 'In total, 30 people were arrested,' said Nazarov, adding that he himself was being held in a police van together with one other demonstrator.

Subscribe to Guardian News on YouTube ► 🤍 Footage showed protesters holding Georgian flags scuffling with police moments before the event was broken up. Organisers accused the authorities of actively colluding with the demonstrators to disrupt the festival, which had been held in private for a second consecutive year to reduce the risk of violent protests. A government minister said it was a difficult event to police as it was held in an open area, near a lake. Georgia has passed laws against discrimination and hate crimes, but LGBTQ+ rights groups say there is a lack of adequate protection by law enforcement officials and homophobia remains widespread in the socially conservative South Caucasus nation.

Protesters chanting: (Russian) "Gays go under the bed." STORYLINE: Moscow police violently dispersed a gay pride rally on Saturday that was banned by city authorities, drawing attention to Russia's record on gay rights as it prepares to host a major international pop music competition. About 30 activists gathered near a university in southwestern Moscow to protest discrimination against gays and lesbians in Russia. The group, which included British gay rights advocate Peter Tatchell, waved flags and chanted slogans, including: "Homophobia is the shame of this country!" and "We are demanding equal rights!" After about a minute, riot police charged into the group and began to grab protesters, dragging them to waiting buses. Russian gay rights movement leader Nikolai Alexeyev was among those detained. After the demonstration, riot police detained other gay activists who appeared after the protest and were speaking with the media. As they hauled away one woman, who identified herself as Ksenia Prilebskaya, police ripped off her shirt and bra and roughly pushed her into a police bus. City authorities had barred Saturday's rally saying it was morally wrong. Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov has described homosexuality as "satanic." At an earlier rally close to the centre of Moscow, about 50 demonstrators from nationalist and Orthodox Christian organisations denounced homosexuality. One man was detained when he accused officials in the Kremlin of being gay. The detentions come as Moscow prepares to host the final of the Eurovision song contest, Europe's most prestigious pop music contest. The international competition has drawn attention to gay rights in Russia, with some singers threatening to boycott the event if the gay pride parade was not allowed to happen.
