Russian Govt. Warns Movie Channel Over Gay Content
By Andrew Belonsky
It's been three months since Russia passed a law banning all public displays of gay approval, but this is the first time the homophobic government has officially chastised a television channel for airing pro-LGBT content.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cable movie channel EvroKino received a stern letter after airing Les Chansons d'Amour (Love Songs), a 2007 French musical that includes a happy gay people, gay sex, and lesbian desire, all of which amounts to "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations," warned the government. EvroKino has been ordered not to replay the movie.
Here is the gay scene from Les Chansons d'Amour. The second video has the English translation.
