“Putin is the ‘Czar of Homophobia’. His regime has outlawed the public expression of LGBT identity and affection – and prohibited the advocacy of LGBT human rights – 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 ‘foreign agents’. These are the latest examples of escalating homophobic and political repression in Russia,” 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.
