Russian LGBT activists want to arrange a parade in Crimea

The Russian LGBTs applied for holding gay pride parades in three cities of Crimea: Simferopol, Yalta and Sevastopol.

This was reported by the unofficial leader of the LGBT movement in Russia Nikolai Alekseev.

Alekseev hopes that the movement supporters from Moscow, St. Petersburg and other regions of Russia will arrive to participate in the events in Crimea.

In his turn, the so-called “head” of Crimea Sergey Aksenov said that the local authorities would not allow any gay pride parades. “The authorities will not allow something that is contrary to the moral values of the peoples of Crimea and that the overwhelming majority of Crimeans finds indignant and disgusting,” he said.

It the same time the Crimean “Premier” does not find such an approach unfair. “There is no discrimination at all. We do not poach on somebody’s preserves; let everyone live at his own wish. But we have to protect people, especially our youth, from those events, which are aimed to take a heavy toll on the moral health of the nation,” he stated.

    But this parade is nothing but gay people, who were born among you, endorsing your culture.

    It is easy for gay people to skulk in the dark, sneaking around in the shadows. Your gay people are giving you a compliment. Your gay people are saying that they believe that you, as their countrymen, are worth giving a chance.

    I do not share that belief. I think that your people have lost their way, and I think that your people are, to a horrible degree, lost in darkness. I think that your people are throwing themselves away like garbage, which is a terrible waste because I once believed that there was something of worth there.

    But some of your gay people are giving you a chance that I, honestly, would not if I were in their position, and perhaps they believe in you more than I would, in their position. I think that you do not deserve them, and I would either leave you or skulk among you like a mongrel at the train station, ignoring you if possible and despising you if I must. Your gays disagree with me, and they might be the only force that has any power to save you, if you can be saved.
