Still no Gay Pride granted in Russia

Written by

While Russian LGBT activists managed to get an agreement to hold a Gay Pride, 24 hours later, the permission was canceled.

Gay Russia's founder Nikolai Alekseev has announced that he has secured the approval of the head of the Novulyanovsk city administration, Svetlana Kosarinova, and the Yoshkar-Ola local administration to organize a Gay Pride.

They agreed because Yabloneviy consists of a total population of seven people (no kidding).

This was supposed to be the first Gay Pride approved since the anti "propaganda gay" law. It was to take place on August 26, 2018.

The following day, a Novoulyanovsk city official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that city chief Gennady Denikayev had decided to put an end to the event.

"The situation in Novulyanovsk reflects the fact that even a senior Russian government official is unable to make a decision on the basis of jurisprudence and his conscience, they are simply not allowed," said Alekseev.

Nikolai Alekseev tries to organize Gay Pride a little everywhere outside cities. After the cancellation, he said he had sent requests to five other cities in the Saratov region.

I hope he gets an agreement for at least one Gay Pride this year.
