Hello, everyone!

I'm lesbian and, sadly, live in the RF. I'm just a persona, who wants to live in peace, but now, when the USA and EU accused RF and make a sanctions, I have 2 problems - my country hates me because I'm gay and the rest of the World hate me coz' I'm russian.

I just want to say that it's painfull and to me unfair that now I feel like I have no any moral support from anyone. Please don't forget about ordinary people, because, maybe you don't know and even don't understand how is that possible, our government when they have problems rise the pressure on people like me.

My colleagues hate me, my parents hate me, my government hate me, so please, you, make an exception... and be on my side...

Здраствуйте! Меня зовут Роман! Мне 19 лет. Я живу в России. Я гей. Сейчас я боюсь жить в России. Законы стали жестокие. Сейчас если узнают что ты гей, то могут избить. А дальше что? Начнут убивать. Это плохо. Поэтому мне страшно так жить. Россия никогда не станет хорошо относиться к геям. Дальше будет ещё хуже. Чтобы связаться со мной; roma.pokemon@mail.ru или http://vk.com/madre_tereza

Hello everyone!
I`m Russian, and I`m lesbian. During all my childhood I wanted to be a boy (since I was 5). I dreamed of friendship with boys, and never of love. At school I falled in love with my math teacher, young woman - but I didn`t understand that. I knew nothing about gays and lesbians. And I think at that time it was good. Then many years have passed. I tried to live with a man when I was 23, but couldn`t do that enough time. That time I realised I should change my life. I met a lesbian girl, rent her room and left my boyfriend. Since then till today I am who I am:)It is two years that I live with a beautiful woman 10 years older. So I don`t wanna be a boy anymore:)
My mother doesn`t know that, but I think she`s suppose; my sister know I`m lesbian. I don`t attend any gay organisation or meetings, but the most of my friends are lesbian. They are also live by themselves. I don`t like any crowd, though it was organized one. I prefer some real persone. You can write me here: veselial@mail.ru

In 1980's I was instructing my gay friends, how to avoid imprisonment due to the antisodomy pragraph 121-1 of the Criminal Code of the USSR. At last the City Prosecutor's Office desided to punish me for this sort of activity and tried to fabricate a criminal case, based on absolutly false accusations. The started investigation deprived me of my work in the state university and left unemployed for two years till the very end of the court procedures and my conditional verdict. On June 1990 a group of activists came to my apartment and we founded gay-lesbian "Krilija" Center of St.Petersburg, http://krilija.sp.ru , which is active up to now, being the oldest LGBTI NGO in Russia, officially registered after a year of struggle at the courts of different level.
