LGBTQIA hatred amplified in Russia.

In Russia, Vladimir Putin signed legislation that bans any “medical interventions aimed at changing the sex of a person”, while also banning changing a person’s gender in official documents or public records.

The only exception to this ban will be medical interventions to treat congenital anomalies.

This same legislation annuls all marriages in which one person has “changed gender”, just as it bars transgender people from becoming foster or adoptive parents.

The discriminatory legislation – which was passed unanimously by both houses of the country’s parliament – is said to protect this country’s “traditional values” from “western anti-family ideology”.

This is only the latest attack on LGBTQIA human rights in Russia. In 2013, as an example, the country adopted legislation that banned any public endorsement of “nontraditional sexual relations” among minors. And last year, Putin signed a law banning “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations” among adults.
