  1. Where’s the international outrage over this?

    But 101 years from now, it’s time to Par-TAY!

    Russia seems to be back on the downslide to re-criminalizing homosexuality. Bet the bill for that will pop up within the next year.

    In all seriousness one can’t expect almost 60 years of societal beliefs to be eradicated in less than 20. Hopefully the younger generation will be more tolerant and keep that mindset as the old guard dies out.

    Aw nuts. I was kind of hoping this going to be a story about ban established 100 years ago, because that would actually go a long way toward explaining the mindset.

    Well, there’s the solution right their in your title!  Hold gay shame parades.  Dark clothes, somber music, slow march.  Use it to shame Moscow.  At least it’ll make a point.  But there will be one huge drawback.

    Won’t be as much fun.

  7. So…you just call it a Gay Shame Parade and it’s okay, right? From the court decision: “Все гомосексуалисты должны конвертировать свои CMYK радужные флаги в оттенках серого.” Or roughly, “All homosexuals must convert their CMYK rainbow flags to grayscale.”

    So basically, in 2112 it will be safe to be gay in Space Russia? This completely explains the imagery of Rush’s seminal album: 2112!!!!
