I hope I'm not offending anyone by saying, "Russians," instead of, "Russian People." You see, last week a transgender person left a comment on one of my posts and she told me that I had offended her because I had used the word, "transgenders," instead of, "transgender people." As always, my post was something that supports people who are transgender. So now I'm starting to wonder what's safe to write. But this article I'm linking to used the word, "Russians," in their title, so I think I'm safe and I don't think I'm offending any Russians...or Russian People, if you will. I just wanted to clarify in case anyone else gets offended, which seems to be happening more and more these days.
In any event, here's something a lot more serious to worry about. In order to celebrate Pride, Russian LGBT people have to cross the border to feel safe. I know things aren't perfect in the US, especially right now, but at least we don't have to leave the country to experience Pride events.
She was one of about 50 people from Russia, Belarus and Kazhakstan who joined the first ever pride parade in Kirkenes, Norway’s border town to Russia in the north. Valentina is psychologist and was the leader of “The house of Equality” project at Maximum, the group for support of LGBT community in Murmansk. Maximum was an NGO that closed down after being listed as “foreign agent” a few years ago.
There's more here. There are a few photos and it looks like a very nice, positive event.
