Gay Parade in Antwerp, Belgium 2018!

Hello everyone! I want to share with you my photos from the gay parade in Antwerp, Belgium.

We managed to participate in this event by our team. We managed to recall the abuses and murders in Chechnya and Russia.

A lot of work is ahead of us, and now we are just happy.

We are grateful to everyone who came to the gay parade, thanks to those who supported us.

Today is the day of the abduction of Zelim Bakayev 08.08.2018

Today is the day of the abduction of Zelim Bakayev 08.08.2018. Exactly one year ago he was kidnapped in Chechnya. We held a rally near the Embassy of Russia (66 Avenue De Fré, 1180 Uccle).

We invited a lot of people, but only three people could come to the embassy and Piet De Bruyn. The rest are afraid. They have a fear of preserving their family, which lives in Russia.

The issue of LGBT Chechens remains open, many continue to be tortured and killed. By our rally, we demand an open investigation into the abduction of Zelim Bakaev and kidnapping of other people in Chechnya and Russia.

We demand the resolution of an international independent investigation by an international human rights organization. We do not forget and see what is happening in Chechnya. The embassy of Russia is ashamed for the disappearance of Zelim Bakaev. We were not allowed to approach the fence of the Russian Embassy.

The Russian authorities are afraid that the whole world will learn the truth about the ill-treatment of LGBT people throughout Russia. We want to thank honest and strong people, all those who support the first “LGBT World Beside” organization for working with LGBT refugees from Chechnya and Russia: the police of Belgium, Piet De Bruyn, Voices4 and RUSALGBT. Thank you for the opportunity to spend a day of memory on different continents. Together we will succeed.

Gay Parade in Amsterdam 2018.

There was an event that we had been waiting for. We congratulate you on the successful LGBT parade. Let the future week be the point of starting new affairs and organizing new events that will help many gays feel protected.

Our team is the first Russian-speaking organization in Europe, actively participated in the gay parade. We prepared as best we could, gathered a large group of girls and guys, we arranged a demonstration meeting on a bridge in Amsterdam, where boats sailed below.

We were photographed by journalists and ordinary people, they greeted us by the hand and wished us a lot of strength, supported us with kind words and asked different questions. It was great that people remember and know about the attitude towards gays in Chechnya and Russia.

We received a great positive energy boost for our future projects. We know that we need this world. We regret that not all participants of our group can attend the photo, as they are afraid for their family left in Chechnya and Russia. Thanks for the support of Voices4 and RUSALGBT.

Argentina Mocks Russian Gay Propaganda Law With Raunchy World Cup Ad

Argentina Mocks Russian Gay Propaganda Law With Raunchy World Cup Ad

An Argentinian sports television channel has drawn attention to Russia’s controversial gay propaganda law with a bawdy ad as Moscow prepares to host the opening of the World Cup next month.

Russia introduced legislation banning the promotion of “non-traditional relationships to children” in 2013 with fines of up to 100,000 rubles ($1,600). Despite the ban, Russian football officials vowed to allow spectators at the June-July championship in Russia to fly rainbow LGBT flags, taking a page from the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

“Mr. Putin, if love among men is a disease for you, then we are very sick. And you know what? It’s contagious,” says the voiceover in a commercial released by the TyC Sports channel Thursday, addressing Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“There’s nothing more exciting than to see a bunch of men jumping naked in the locker room,” the voiceover of the commercial is heard saying, featuring images of Putin, a streaker, screaming fans and Argentine football legends Maradona and Messi.

The ad was pulled from YouTube and Twitter hours after LGBT advocates criticized it for insensitivity and homophobia, Newsweek magazine reported.

“The channel wanted to describe the unrivaled passion of the Argentinians for football, but the idea was not developed in the best way,” wrote the local Diario Popular newspaper.
