Russian parliament passes law banning 'LGBT propaganda' among adults
Reuters (on their own site)

MOSCOW, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Russia's parliament approved on Thursday a bill that widens a prohibition of "LGBT propaganda" and restricts the "demonstration" of LGBT behaviour, making any expression of an LGBT lifestyle almost impossible.

Under the new law, which still needs the approval of the upper house of parliament and President Vladimir Putin, any action or information that is considered an attempt to promote homosexuality - whether in public, online, or in films, books or advertising - could incur a heavy fine.

Previously, the law had outlawed only promotion of LGBT lifestyles aimed at children. The new bill also bans the "demonstration" of LGBT behaviour to children.

...

"LGBT today is an element of hybrid warfare and in this hybrid warfare we must protect our values, our society and our children," Alexander Khinstein, one of the bill's architects, said last month.

Legal experts said the vagueness of the bill's language gives room for law enforcers to interpret them as broadly as they wish, leaving members of the LGBT community in a state of even greater uncertainty.

Kseniya Mikhailova of the LGBT support group Vykhod ("Coming Out" ) said adults-only gay bars or clubs would probably still be allowed to function, although perhaps not to advertise, but that same-sex kissing in public might be taken as an infraction.

And she said same-sex couples would begin to fear that their children might be taken from them on the grounds that they were having an LGBT lifestyle demonstrated to them.

...


Emphasis added.

In essence, being gay means being an agent of Russia's enemies.
This is way beyond old school homophobia.

1. Project much, Poot?

If they worried more about their economy, corruption - and the way their dictator's destroying Russia's international standing (what was left of it), maybe they'd be in better shape.

2. I feel such empathy for confused youth

God only knows how close I came to an ending hanging from a freeway bridge because I thought I must be the weirdest, most rotten thing ever conceived in the universe. I lived in an era and a place where information about LGBT was not found. Where we were made to feel isolated, defective, suicidal.
