An experiment by a Russian TV channel looking at Moscow citizens’ reactions to a pair of guys holding hands on the street has had some disturbing results.
We sometimes hear about Russian leaders making anti-gay statements, and in Saint Petersburg there’s a ‘promoting homosexuality’ law against mentioning same-sex couples around children.
But does a regular citizen of Moscow also detest gay people? It appears too many do.
“My heart was beating loudly as I watched the video,” said a YouTube commenter. “It wasn’t too long ago that Americans would’ve acted the same way. Keep spreading the word and people will change.”
Watch what happens when two guys walk around holding hands in Putin’s Russia.
