"As if things weren't insane enough for Russian Queers. Now it's going to be a crime to "Come Out!"
The most basic act of self respect for any Fag is to acknowledge who they are, and the world can go fuck itself! Now even 'that' most intimate personal, and basic human right is a crime.
In Russia as in Africa the whole Mid-East except for Israel the Caribbean, and parts of Asia..."Queerdom" means Death. That or living a whole life in fear.
In fact here in the "Land of the 'Not' so Free Anymore". There are Millions...yeah millions that would like the same here. They see us as another very dangerous, and vile species that must be eradicated.
Odd that I was just thinking the same about them.
The entry below is from Queer media, and paints a grim picture for our Russian sisters, and brothers. There are few articles about the persecutions in other parts of the world.
...except for the photos of Queers beaten to death hanged shot burned stoned or tossed off tall buildings that show up now, and then.

Russian lawmakers are drafting a bill that would impose fines or jail time for “coming out” as gay.
Citing a report Friday in the state-owned newspaper Izvestia, Newsweek reports the bill would criminalize making a “public confession of their non-traditional sexual orientation.”
The bill is intended as an amendment to the already controversial law banning “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” to minors.
The lower house of the Russian parliament, the State Duma, passed the original law in 2013 that has been labelled “a tool of discrimination [that] legitimizes anti-LGBT violence” by Human Rights Watch.
According to the proposed amendment to the law, people who are defined as having “non-traditional sexual orientation” could be fined 5,000 roubles ($80) for “demonstrating [their] own expressed sexual preferences in public places.”
If the same is done in schools, cultural establishments or government buildings, this would be punishable by up to 15 days in jail.
