Mayor of Olympics host Sochi: We have no homosexuals in our city

Monday, January 27, 2014

The mayor of the Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi, soon to play host to the Winter Olympics, says there are no gay people in his city.

Anatoly Pakhomov

Anatoly Pakhomov, a member of President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party, says that gay people would be welcome at the games as long as they respect the laws of the Russian Federation and do not “impose their habits on others,” reported the BBC.

But when asked whether gay people had to hide their sexuality in Sochi, the mayor said: “No, we just say that it is your business, it’s your life. But it’s not accepted here in the Caucasus where we live. We do not have them in our city.”

Boris Nemtsov, former Deputy Prime Minister and now a leader of the opposition, said the Pakhomov’s claim was laughable.

“As far as I know there are several gay clubs in Sochi,” said Nemtsov. “How do they survive? Why they are not bankrupt?”

When challenged, the mayor admitted that he was not certain there were no gay people in Sochi: “I am not sure, but I don’t bloody know them.”

In September, the Associated Press profiled Sochi’s thriving gay scene.

  2. Funny how the GOP is all anti-communist…until Putin and his anti-gay laws for Russia come around…than suddenly the GOP loves him for promoting so called “moral behavior”.

    Hypocrites!

  3. o.O There are probably Gays in EVERY city, moron! There’s a huge difference between being openly Gay and actually being Gay.

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 3:44pm
  4. the political climate determines the openness of being gay, the human person born determines the being gay, Gays are in all cities, not just a probability.

  114. In a city if 350,000 ppl and no gay. There’s no gay people that can speak up freely against the anti gay laws, which should be said! These leaders are under pressure of the government of Russia to say this stupid thought.
    Added on to the Boycott that has been placed in effect against the Olympic games. They say this to attract people to buy tickets to the Olympics, they can’t sell.
    I have and still keep a boycott against the Sochi Winter Olympics and the businesses coca cola, visa, mcdonalds and the Russian vodka because of them supporting anti gay laws.
    Russian officials are cowards to not speaking up against President Putin and his Communist ways to govern the people of Russia

  133. That’s like Ahmadinejad saying there are no Gays in Iran. Fact: Where ever there are people, there are Heterosexuals, Bisexuals, Homosexuals, Transgendered, and so on. It’s all about if people are willing to accept that with a sense of reason or not. To deny is to be ignorant and delusional.
