Procjenjuje se da samo jedan posto ruske LGBT populacije živi otvoreno, dok velika većima i dalje javno ne progovara o svojoj spolnoj orijentaciji.

Homoseksualnost nije ilegalna u Rusiji, no zakon o zabrani gej propagande poprilično komplicira svakodnevni život LGBT populaciji. Naime, aktivisti ne smiju javno spominjati homoseksualnost. Također im je zabranjeno okupljanje u skupine  u kojima bi se članove pozivalo na „izlazak iz ormara“, podcrtava Out magazine.

HBO je takođe emitovao dokumentarac Hunted: The War Against Gays in Russia“ (Progonjeni: Rat protiv gejeva u Rusiji) koji je na istu temu prikazao svjedočanstva gejeva u Rusiji koji su preživjeli teror homofobičnih huligana.

Hunted in Russia explores the terror that gay people in Russia are calling the “hunting season”. This shocking documentary offers unique access to vigilante groups that track down, beat up and humiliate gay men and women. It depicts a country troubled by disturbing homophobic violence and intimidation — a country in which gay people are treated like animals and hunted for sport.

In Russia, gay men and women are “hunted like animals.” That’s the chilling message in HBO’s new documentary about the war against LGBT Russians, “Hunted: The War Against Gays in Russia.”

Though homosexuality was legalized 20 years ago in Russia, homophobic violence is on the rise in the country, and according to the documentary, it might be a plot by the government to distract Russians from the nation’s many problems. The situation is so bad that it’s thought only one percent of gay and lesbian Russians live openly.
