St. Petersburg City Legislature Punts Anti-Gay Bill Vote

Jim Burroway

November 30th, 2011

In a surprising development, LGBT advocate Polina Savchenko of St. Petersburg-based LGBT organization Coming Out reports that the city legislature completed its session today without voting on the bill which would ban “public actions aimed at propaganda of pederasty, lesbianism, bisexuality, and transgenderism among minors.” With this delay, the bill will not be adopted before the elections scheduled for this weekend. The danger that the bill could resurface in the next government, however, remains very real, according to the statement from Coming Out.

Punting is the right term. Russia needs to come out of the dark ages of the Soviet dictatorship and embrace intellectual liberalism that recognizes that human sexuality is diverse and acceptable ………….. with the exception of adults preying upon minors.
