Gay & Happy in Russia?08/09/13 We discuss the latest homophobic crackdown in Russia
â€œPutin is the â€˜Czar of Homophobiaâ€™. His regime has outlawed the public expression of LGBT identity and affection â€“ and prohibited the advocacy of LGBT human rights â€“ in circumstances where a person under 18 might see it. The adoption of children by overseas same-sex couples has also been banned and LGBT organisations that receive donations from abroad are being fined as â€˜foreign agentsâ€™. These are the latest examples of escalating homophobic and political repression in Russia,â€ said Peter Tatchell, Director of the Peter Tatchell Foundation. On the next edition of Life Elsewhere we discuss what is happening in Russia with Peter Tatchell.
