Milan, Venice Cutting “Twin” Ties With St. Petersburg Over Anti-Gay Law

Cities in Italy are saying dosvedanya to St. Petersburg—severing their ties as twin cities with the historic Russian capital because of its gay-propaganda ban.

Protestors in Milan, Venice and Turin have convinced their respective city halls to rescind the unofficial relationships, outraged that St. Petersburg has made it a crime to expose minors to “deformed notions of social equality of traditional and nontraditional marital relations.”

In April, leading Russian LGBT activist Nicolai Alexeyev was arrested for picketing St. Petersburg City Hall with a sign that read: “Homosexuality is not a perversion. Perversion is hockey on the grass and ballet on ice.”

Asked about being dumped by the Italians, United Russia party official Vitaly Milonov responded, “It’s a great shame that a city like Milan would take a decision like this. Of course, it’s hard for many of our European colleagues to accept our law, as many of them are members of the gay lobby.”
