RussiaConsider Locking Up Gays Who Express Gayness in the Open

1 post in this topic

The Russian Duma will vote this week on a measure which would ban all public displays of affection between same-sex couples.

The legislation suggests punishments for same-sex couples who are caught kissing or holding hands in public, or those who come out to young people, from 5000 ruble fines to two-week prison sentences.

Russia has been criticised for cracking down on the rights of LGBT people since it passed a law banning the promotion of “non-traditional sexual relations” to minors.

The previous law was signed by President Vladimir Putin in 2013.

This latest law was introduced by Ivan Nikitchuk, a Communist party MP, and will be debated in the Duma this week.

“Homosexuality is a huge threat to every normal person, which can affect children or grandchildren,” he said.
