so is it safe there for gay ppl or not? would u walk with ur bf?
p.s no one Argues about the countries beauty
The poster that I quoted was asking why would any gay person travel to Russia, and that was my response: because of the beauty and the culture of the nation.
Is it safe for gay people, I would say as safe as for anyone else. Would I walk with my boyfriend holding hands, probably not, but then again I don't think there is one place on earth where you could feel 100% because no matter where you are (Paris, Gay Lauderdale, WeHo) someone will always do a double take.

Besides, if there's one "positive" thing about this law is that it serves as a warning, there's hardly anything that could more obviously say "don't come it's not safe" than this.
I understand your point but there are hate crimes everywhere, against some religious groups, ethnicities and of course sexual orientation. I can pin point at least 10 anti-gay incidents in the U.S this past 6 months, so I believe it could happen anywhere.
I don't think theres a silver lining in this policy, and although it does not represent the sentiment of the entire nation, it does express the concern of a certain majority.
