BuzzFeed is right. Russia is a scary place for the gay community right now.

The former Soviet Union has banned “gay propaganda” (see: anything educating anyone about homosexuals), they have banned gay couples from being able to adopt, and violence takes place at every gay pride event.

Many of the actions from President Putin are in direct retaliation to other countries growing acceptance of gays, such as the United States Supreme Court striking down DOMA and Prop 8 last month.

Check out this photo set from BuzzFeed. It only scratches the surface of what it must be like for the gay community in Russia.
