Russian Bill Would Force Gay Men to Stay in the Closet
Russians lawmakers are considering making it a crime for gay men to come out of the closet having drafted an amendment to the country's 2013 "LGBT Propaganda Law" that would make it against the law for gays to “demonstrate their expressed sexual preferences in public places.” The law would only apply to gay men and not lesbians.

Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has denied the claims, and is supported by the Kremlin who say there is no evidence to support the "phantom" claims.

Mass Arrests and Torture of Gay Men in Chechnya
Amid reports of a brutal crackdown on gay men in the Russian republic of Chechnya, a number of witnesses and victims are now bolstering allegations of mass arrests and torture. Hundreds of gay men are being rounded up by the authorities there and held in appalling conditions in least three detention centers. Gay activists say sexual minorities have for years been targeted in conservative Chechnya. The mainly Muslim republic is run by Ramzan Kadyrov, a Kremlin-backed strongman, whose security forces are accused by human rights groups of abductions, killings and other abuses. A Chechen government spokesman called the allegations of a gay crackdown in Chechnya "an absolute lie," and denied gay men exist in the republic. http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/18/europe/russia-chechnya-gays/index.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Boston Gay Men's Chorus responds to anti-gay Russian laws with "Everything Possible" music video
The Boston Gay Men's Chorus responded to the spate of recent anti-gay Russian laws by releasing a music video of "Everything Possible" on You Tube. "We wanted to put out positive propaganda that there's nothing wrong with being gay," said Craig Coogan the organization's Executive Director. Everything IS possible. "'Everything Possible' is a wonderful and powerful piece by Fred Small that tells you that you can do anything and be anybody whom you want to be," said Reuben M. Reynolds, III the Chorus' Music Director since 1987. "We sing it at every outreach concert we do because it really speaks to people time and time again. When we thought about how to respond to the horrible things happening in Russia, it made sense to translate the lyrics into Russian and scroll them on the screen." Videos of the Boston Gay Men's Chorus on You Tube have been viewed more than 325,000 times. Responding to the anti-gay laws and violence is of particular importance to the leadership of the Boston Gay Men's Chorus. Mr. Reynolds spent the summer of 1998 in St. Petersburg, Russia, conducting the Hermitage Camerata in the Catherine the Great Theatre. Mr. Coogan produced the 1999 award-winning documentary "beyond the walls..." that chronicled the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles' tour of Russia. "Music transcends cultural barriers, builds bridges and dispels myths and stereotypes. We demonstrate this every time we take the stage," said Coogan. "In this case thanks to You Tube the world is our stage and we hope the people of Russia -- both gay and straight -- are able to hear that Everything's Possible."

Gay Men Maxim Says It's Okay To "Respect"
The Russian edition of Maxim has recently published an article called “Gays We Respect.” Russia passed very strict anti-gay laws, and spreading “gay propaganda” is a crime in the country, yet this article toes the line between pro and anti gay depending on your point of view. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian (The Point), and Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?!) hosts of The Young Turks discuss. Is this article making fun of Russia’s policies or is it actually anti-gay? Let us know in the comments below.

This is the rule,” the introduction to the post reads. “But there are exceptions.
