Crimea's Gay Pride Was Cancelled

Written by 

Crimea

 

 

Yesterday and today, LGBTQ people of Crimea were to celebrate the Gay Pride but they could not do it because of new Russian laws.

As we had seen last week, since Crimea joined Russia, the LGBT community found itself living under anti-gay laws, their relationships from now on being regarded as illegal.

And thus because of the anti gay “propaganda” law, the Gay Pride of April 22-23 was cancelled.

Even if the new constitution of the Crimea does not define the marriage as only between a man and a woman, as much feared it, it prevented however that the Russian anti-gay laws apply and do not offer any protection to LGBT people.
