LGBT Fans Are Staying With Fear In Russia As The Locals Are Big Time Homophobes

While the football world cup is witnessing nail-biting matches, the Russians, in general, are reportedly irked about the presence of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) fans being in Russia. In 2013, Russia introduced a law that made it an offence to distribute “propaganda” related to homosexuality to people under the age of 18.

However, now the Russian officials have allowed – a symbol of gay nights- to be displayed at venues.

“It is one of the priorities of FIFA and the Local Organising Committee to promote a welcoming environment for all attendees of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and we consider the diversity houses of FARE to be an important complement to our own activities in that respect,” a spokesman told Channel NewsAsia.
