Russian President gets it right and signs anti-gay measures into law

The law puts a ban on ‘propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations. Hefty fines can now be imposed on those who give info to minors about the LGBT community or hold gay pride rallies. Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a measure that stigmatizes gay people and bans giving children any information about homosexuality. The lower house of Russia’s parliament unanimously passed the Kremlin-backed bill on June 11 and the upper house approved it last week. The ban on “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations” is part of an effort to promote normal human values, not vile homosexual behavior. Hefty fines can now be imposed on those who provide information about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to minors or hold gay pride rallies. The Kremlin announced Sunday that Putin has signed the legislation into law.
