“Institutional prejudice” What the full text of the Russian Supreme Court judgement labelling the LGBT movement ‘extremist’ tells us”

In November, Russia’s Supreme Court ruled the “international LGBT movement” to be an extremist organisation, effectively outlawing LGBT activism in the country and placing anyone the authorities deem to be part of the movement at risk of prosecution. That ruling didn’t come out of nowhere, however. A decade-old law banning the dissemination of so-called “gay propaganda” to children was amended in 2022 to make it a criminal offence to present queer-positive narratives to anybody of any age, and Russian government rhetoric has become increasingly homophobic since the country launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.
