Russia’s “gay propaganda” law is directly harming and endangering LGBT+ children and young people, according to a new report. The report – which is called “No Support: Russia’s ‘Gay Propaganda’ Law Imperils LGBT Youth” – was released today by Human Rights Watch, and runs to 92 pages. The human rights group found that the law, which was implemented in 2013, exacerbated hostility towards LGBT+ people in Russia. They also found that the law has prevented LGBT+ people from accessing inclusive education and support services, and that this has had a detrimental impact on children and young people.
