If it weren't for Tchaikovsky ( a gay composer ) nobody outside Russia would even know Valery Gergiev exists ! That's what's called biting the hand that feeds you .. Sordid interest turns even artists into outright hypocrites and traitors .

He's a great conductor who evidently happens to be a schmuck of a person.

He should remember, as an opera conductor, that opera would probably not exist if it weren't for opera queens.
