Russian landlords use propaganda law to hound gays in their own homes

Witch-hunt notice warns tenants to be vigilant – gays ‘can look like you’ but are breaching the law by ‘living as a homosexual’ and may offer you sex
A notice shows how Russian landlords are using propaganda laws to persecute gay people in their own homes.

Russian landlords are using the propaganda law to hound gay people in their own homes.

A witch-hunt style notice, it warns tenants to be vigilant over LGBT people who can ‘look like you’ and could be anyone.

It urges any person who suspects anyone who might do ‘homosexual propaganda’ to contact the police as soon as possible.

As translated by O-blog-dee-o-blog-da, the notice states:

‘Please remember, that homosexuals can be dressed quite simply. He looks like you, he can be nice to talk to, and you can even know him.

‘Rememeber that homosexuals do not know the age limit and a person who does gay propaganda can be person who just graduated from school or an old man.

‘Increase your vigilance when you talk to your neighbors, when you are checking your mail and in elevators.

‘You can easily become a target of homosexual propaganda. There is one step from being homosexual and to start propaganda of homosexualism and molesting decent people.’

The posters were placed in a building in Rostov-on-Don, a port city and the administrative center of Rostov Oblast and the Southern Federal District of Russia.

City officials have distanced themselves from the flyers, urging them to be removed. While unconfirmed, there are rumors it could be a provocation in the upcoming elections of the city mayor.

Police are reportedly investigating the incident.

Human rights activist Melanie Nathan described it as a ‘shocking example’ that proves LGBTI people are not safe in Russia.

‘This notice posted by the administrator of a building illustrates that the so called “anti-propaganda” laws have led to widespread persecution of gays,’ she said.

‘[The laws] emboldens the general populace to hate gays, it provides the impetus for witch hunts and provides this very license for persecution.’
