St. Petersburg, Russia Considering Anti-Gay Propaganda Law

Lawmakers in St Petersburg, Russia are considering legislation to prohibit “propaganda of sodomy, lesbianism, bisexualism and transgenderism, to minors” and “propaganda of paedophilia,” PinkNews reports.“By combining homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality into one law with sexual crimes against minors, members of the Legislative Assembly indulge in gross manipulations of public opinion. Their goal – to pass an anti-democratic law, directed at severely limiting human rights in St. Petersburg,” Russia’s LGBT equality organizations warn.
