Russians courts have convicted the first two people on charges of LGBTQ extremism following the Supreme Court’s decision in November to ban the “international LGBT movement”. One woman was sentenced to five days in jail for wearing earrings that had a rainbow on them. A man was convicted and fined for posting a photo of a rainbow flag online. Reuters reported: Two Russian courts have meted out the first convictions in connection with what the government calls the “international LGBT social movement” and which was designated as extremist last year. On Thursday, a court in the southern region of Volgograd found a man guilty of “displaying the symbols of an extremist organization” after he posted a photograph of an LGBTQ flag online, according to the court’s press service.
