According to the authors of the letter, the adoption of the law against “LGBT propaganda” will lead to an increase in violence against LGBT people.
“Obviously, our country is passing a discriminatory homophobic law that violates human rights. Therefore, I considered it important that the Human Rights Council express its position and support LGBT people in Russia. Many say that such statements do not change anything, but I believe that for LGBT people who are in a homophobic society, such public support in the form of such statements is like such a “beam of light in the dark kingdom,” Troshin said.
