today the russian highest court decided that all of the LGBT "international movement" is extremist. and any queer activist could face up to ten whole years in prison. this is not a joke, and this is as extreme, horrible and absurd as it sounds.
transitioning, both medical and legal is already banned. any form of "LGBT propoganda", both for minors and adults is already banned. this is a really hard time to fucking exist as a queer person in russia. we can't even go to a protest, and putin had been practically the president for 20+ years, and there's almost no chance he won't win the upcoming election. the elections are a known scam for us. we live in a dictatorship.
I don't see anyone international speaking about it. this is big news. please help spread the word
it is heartbreaking to never see anyone caring about this problems globally, like when something regarding queer rights happens in america or in western europe then the whole internet is talking about it, but when even a catastrophe like this happens over here nobody bats an eye
this isn't said to offend you or anyone else. this is a cry for help and solidarity. like come on we queers are supposed to be a community!!!
