Backing the rights of gay people is difficult in Russia. But now it's much easier than it was 10 or 20 years ago. Back then you could've gotten in jail for homosexual relations.

There're good people here. I wish you luck and if by any chance you are coming to Russia I'll be happy to meet you personally.

Best regards
Vladimir Shahijanian
