Things quickly spiral out of control and Jason is put in charge of the first ever gay pride parade in the sleepy small southern town.

As most of the world moves forward toward gay equality, Russia is seemingly heading backward. Anti-gay sentiment and legislation are spreading rapidly throughout the country. In 2013, the Russian parliament passed a ban on so-called "gay propaganda" that effectively makes nearly any public discussion of gay equality a crime. The city of Moscow has outlawed Gay Pride parades for the next 100 years. Adoption of Russian children is forbidden to citizens of any foreign country that permits gay marriage. The Kremlin has chosen the LGBT community as its scapegoat in a populist campaign against supposedly decadent "Western" values, and there are ominous signs of much worse to come. Violent attacks against Russian gays or suspected gays are more and more common. Videos of young LGBT people being taunted and tortured have been widely distributed on the Internet. Those are the stories that get the headlines, but there is much more to the Russian LGBT men and woman I have met. It is my hope that this documentary will educate viewers to their reality.

 

Hosted by Michael Lucas and featuring Masha Gessen, Thor Halverseen, Wanja Kilber, Alexander Kargaltsev, Manny De Guerre, Gulya Sultanova, Elena Kostyuchenko, Mitya Aleshkovsky, Marnia Melnik, Andrey Obolensky, Dmitry Potapov, and Vitaly Milonov
