  2. Yeah, cos we're so more evolved ... where? The struggle for equal rights has been fought, and the fight goes on. No need for anyone to feel smug because the fight was won on their turf before they had to fight. You think Russia is backward? Yes, it is. And so was the UK, so was everywhere else. Let's not get all uppity, if you think for a moment the rights won, hard won, can't be taken away, or that Russia is so different ... Russians are no more backward than the christian republicans in the US who think there is a gay agenda. So let's not feel superior, and let's fight for equality, in Russia, and wherever else.

  14. BRAVO to the IT GETS BETTER PROJECT …You are a wonderful example of international solidarity being used to counter hate with your message of support sent out to LGBTQ youth in Russia…We need to support all forms of action and solidarity like this right now around the world….A lot of people suggest just get these kids out as a solution to the problem…Try getting visas and papers to just leave Russia right now and move into another nation…That does not happen in the real world.
