The country’s controversial “homosexual propaganda” legislation, banning the promotion of “non-traditional sexual relations” among minors, is broad. It means that, among other things, teachers cannot tell their students that gay and straight relationships are equal; parents cannot tell their children being LGBT is normal, and people cannot distribute pamphlets promoting gay rights.

“After the new law was passed, repression really kicked in,” said 17-year-old Guryanov.“People would give us weird looks. They were wild. They looked at us as if we were animals.”

In a new documentary, Young and Gay in Putin’s Russia, to be released by Vice and gay rights campaigning group Stonewall, Guryanov and other LGBT Russians come together to warn the world that they do not feel safe.

They warn that the “brutal” laws have led to an increase in homophobic violence, arrests, suicides and the proliferation of vigilante groups in Russia, who want to hunt out LGBT people online.

There is something loopy about Putins translation of the word 'GAY'
.
Gay people do not go around raping children
.
An adult who rapes children is a 'pedophile'
.
Putin uses the wrong word

Putin is gay himself. That's why so much hate toward them.

He recently divorced his wife because he doesn't need her anymore?

1. They're not.
2. It isn't.
3. They shouldn't.

The US constitution says otherwise. Your inability to understand equal protection of the law doesn't negate that fact.

Medical professionals disagree with you. However, you've yet to provide any proof or your normalcy from a recognized professional medical association. Until then you're just an abnormal schmuck as demonstrated by the prejudice and irrationality of your posts.

If you don't like facts taught to children in public schools, your options are private school and home school. Take your pick.

1. No it doesn't.
2. Just the gay ones.
3. I do like facts taught to children. Facts that will make them more successful and self-supporting. Telling them lies about homosexuals won't do either.

You have no f-ing clue what equal protection of the law even means. You still can't understand why courts cite Loving v. Virginia when ruling on same sex marriage cases.

Professional medical groups don't have a sexual orientation,*sswipe. Nor are more than a small minority of the members even gay. But of course you never let facts get in the way of your conspiracy theories.

Indeed. So telling them your lies that gay relationships are harmful and gays are mentally ill doesn't help children; it merely panders to bigoted *sswipes like you.
