Children are playing Gestapo in the Runet

Having formed groups based on their sexuality in social networks, teenagers declared a war on each other in reality.

 We want to tell you a story.

A story about our children.

The children we don’t really know.

They put it this way themselves: ‘We are invisible. We are not seen. We are not known, but we exist’.

Recently they have declared themselves to the world.

They invented a name for themselves – ‘Children-404’. The name was chosen by the analogy with the internet error 404. “It’s this thing which happens when you surf the web, and the search engine spits it out – the page is not found.”

 Thus the country has found out about teenagers with non-traditional orientation.

Straight away a glove was thrown down at them.

by other kids, who called themselves ‘Children-1488’.

The story behind the struggle of two teenage gangs and who they, these children with a number, are – in the material by the newspaper MK. Continue reading Children are playing Gestapo in the Runet

The State Duma introduced a law against not only ‘propaganda’, but also ‘justification of homosexualism’

When that law was not yet in force, nothing stopped people suspected in being of an ‘abnormal’ orientation from being mocked, insulted, fired and killed. I am talking about adults. But LGBT-teenagers are insulted, mocked and pushed away in exactly the same way.And they have nowhere to go for help; sometimes they don’t even have anyone to talk to.

The law, which is concerned with the wellbeing of abstract ‘children’, will hit particular individuals who are struggling enough already. And the society, which is uneducated and unenlightened as it is, will override those teens. It will push them down a dangerous path exactly as it does now.

We want to be able to love and not hide!

18 March 2013

Last week the English writer and actor Stephen Fry came to Saint Petersburg to make a BBC film about problems faced by LGBT communities around the world. He interviewed the MP Milonov and tweeted that ‘Milonov doesn’t seem to believe there are teenagers bullied and tormented for being gay’.

Really, so very often we hear, in everyday life and from government platforms: ‘Why do gays puff their orientation out? Do they have to babble on about what get up to in bed, so openly? They should tone it down a bit!’

‘Honestly, why do you have to tell anyone about your orientation, especially if it is non-traditional? It is so personal…It would be fine if it was just about the adults, but why do naïve young teenagers do it?’ Continue reading We want to be able to love and not hide!

Heated debates about ‘rainbow questions’ do not stop. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on the 26th of February that Russia – what a surprise – doesn’t have any international requirements to ‘allow the propaganda’ of homosexuality. Not long after then (21st of February) during a talk show called ‘Open discussions’ on Channel 5 (theme –“The same-sex question”) members of the ruling United Russia party, Maksim Mishenko and Vitaly Milonov, were shouting, interrupting each other: ‘There is an aggressive attempt to drag people into that society! That movement will conquer more and more people! The country is being corrupted by fornication and sin!’ And so it all began…Gays pervert children! Gays are recruiting supporters! Gays are filling our schools with propaganda! Propaganda, propaganda, propaganda, propagandapropagandapropaganda… Continue reading Where do gay teenagers come from?

‘Good day. I want to thank you for “The pervert state,” your material. I changed my mind about killing myself. Everyone told me that I am abnormal, a freak. I wanted to go. I had no more strength. So lonely, there was nobody around who would understand. But I realised that I am in fact normal. Thank you’.

We started writing to each other.

‘Interview? I am afraid. If it is found out – that’s the end… Let’s talk later’.

‘Ok’.

Three days later we talked over the phone. Continue reading Children – ‘404’

Hello,

This is a blog dedicated to LGBT teenagers in Russia. Now, when the new homophobic laws have been put in force, children and teenagers are the most vulnerable part of Russia’s LGBT community, as the purpose of the law is to ‘protect minors from propaganda of homosexualism’. Russian politicians pretend that LGBT children and teenagers do not exist, making them virtually invisible – children 404, an error, those who are not found. Continue reading Children-404.
