Mr Propaganda : It is during 8 years that Russian LGBT community have made attempts to arrange for a Gay Pride parade in Moscow. All public LGBT actions have been banned by the authorities. Not a single action has been authorized throughout these years. On 21 October 2010, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that Moscow Gay Pride bans were illegal. It was the first case on violation of the right to freedom of assembly as well as the first case on violation of LGBT rights in Russia. New homophobic laws banning gay propaganda to minors were passed in several Russian regions. How is the gay revolution made in Russia? And who stands behind it? Film idea Vladimir Ivanov.

Despite the ruling of the European Court of Human Rights in favor of Nikolay and the resignation of Mayor Yury Luzhkov, Moscow authorities banned Gay Pride marches in 2011, 2012 and for the next 100 years. Russian courts once again ruled in favor of the authorities. Nikolay and the activists of his organization have 20 more cases on various violations of LGBT rights in Russia pending before the European Court of Human Rights. In July 2012 Moscow Pride activist Alexey Kiselev left persecution in Russia and asked for political asylum in Spain. By the end of 2012, nine Russian regions out of 83 implemented laws banning homosexual propaganda to minors. On 31 October 2012 United Nations Human Rights Committee ruled in the case of Irina Fedotova (Fet) v. Russia that Ryazan regional laws banning homosexual propaganda violate freedom of expression and anti-discrimination provisions of the International Pact on Civil and Political Rights ratified by Russia.
