The mayor refused, calling them “satanic” ● In Moscow, gay parades were banned for 100 years (starting in 2012/2013) ● The reason given for this strict ban was because they said that the majority of the population is not okay with the LGBTQ community ● ***These people are at least 60% ultra conservative ● It is very difficult for young people to come out and tell their parents about their sexuality. In the small towns, they keep a low profile ● The majority of the population in Russia still believe that homosexuality cannot be justified ● The Gay Propaganda Bill, was put into place to “protect” children under the age of 18 ● The church called the legalization of same sex marriage a very dangerous sign of the start of the apocalypse
