WATCH: Russian Vigilantes Go Hunting For Gays “On Safari”

As part of a BBC report exposing the violent videos fueling the anti-gay group Occupy Pedophilia, a 21-year-old gay man is seen being forced to drink urine and a group of vigilantes, led by a woman named Yekaterina, goes “on safari,” hunting for homosexuals and pedophiles.

“Our priority is uncovering cases of pedophilia,” Yekaterina told the BBC’s Steve Rosenberg. “But we’re also against the promotion of homosexuality. And if — along the way — we encounter people of non-traditional sexual orientation, we can kill two birds with one stone.”

LGBT activists claim the law passed in June banning the “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” has contributed to a spate of anti-gay violence, which often goes unchecked by authorities. Though homosexuality was decriminalized in 1993, some gays believe that life was better before that in the then-U.S.S.R.

“Many gay people have changed how they dress, they’ve removed earrings, changed their hairstyles, to avoid having problems,” said Andrei Tanichev, owner of the Lighthouse Cabaret Club in Sochi, home of the 2014 Winter Olympics. “Even back in the USSR, where homosexuality was a criminal offense, gays were treated better than they are now in Russia.”

Tanichev and others hope that the Sochi Olympics makes Russia more tolerant and makes LGBTs feel safer in their own country. “Ordinary people see us as criminals,” he said. “They hate us.”

      Balehead, maybe they’re just bitter because they see all the hot GAY men and wanna have their children but cannot ha ha. I remember the first time I slept with a woman(Yeah, I’m not a “pure blood”, but who is? Besides Andrew Rannells and Andy Cohen), worst mistake ever. These Russian women are sad people. Why must you hate something just because you cannot have it? No sense there!!!

      What’s with the flood of propaganda on this site for Stolichnaya vodka and its inane “Stoli Guy” campaign? Ads everywhere, and multiple “news items” (not labeled as sponsored) — with *comments disabled*.

      I recognize there are different opinions on whether on not to boycott Stoli (I’ve seen enough reasons to be pro-boycott). But shutting down the dialogue for a blitz of propaganda? WFT, Queerty? How much did you get for selling out?

      @DonW: Allot of $ is being dolled out by Stoli. Especially, on Queerty with Stolie ads galore. Queerty isn’t going to upset their cash cow. So no more complementary will be tolerated here.

      How do they expect men to “change” from being gay as if option they have that kind of women?! Is it any wonder that the number of gays is not greater…
      Jokes aside; this situation is getting ridiculous! What is needed to end this situation? A genocide? I pity those who live in Russia!

      This is what happens when you let religious fundamentalism take over. This is literally what many in the west want.

      Ugh, disgusting. These bastards are nazis, ‘CLEANSE’ Russia? Are they really that soulless? For the safety of the LGBT community there, I personally would not associate with any ‘outside’ individuals that I am unaware of, can’t believe this is happening.

      Kremlin-produced propoganda. It is meant to distract from holding the federal politicians accountable for their crimes against the LGBTA community. Corrupt politicians want you to think about anything except punishing the politicians who have harmed billions of LGBTA people.

      I’m sure that members of the IOC are riding along cheering the groups.

      Now that Japan has won the hosting of 2020 Olympics, we should begin right away focusing on what sort of gay rights their people do and don’t have. Seems the Russians have set precedent for the need to examine in advance the treatment of our gay brothers and sisters abroad through a new global lgbt rights activism.
