Yevgeny Voitsekhovsky and Pavel Stotsko aren't just a married gay couple — they were the first married gay couple in Russia after their January marriage was officially recognized by a government official. But their bliss was short lived, and they were quickly forced to flee the country in fear for their lives. The couple has been staying ever since in a small town in the Netherlands, where they spoke exclusively to VICE News. Although gay marriage is illegal in Russia, Voitsekhovsky and Stotsko took advantage of a loophole earlier this year after discovering the government recognizes foreign marriages. The couple wed in Denmark in January, seven years after they first started dating. On their return to Russia, they took their internal passports to a government office to be officially registered. To their surprise, registering at the municipality office went off without a hitch. “They just took our marriage certificate and stamped our passports,” Pavel Stotsko told VICE News. “At the time, the woman that did it saw that there are two men before her, but she wasn't in any way shocked. She acted by the order they have that marriage registered abroad is recognized in Russia". The trouble came afterward, when the couple went on television to talk about their status as Russia’s first married gay couple. Over the next few days, they say, they were harassed by police and had their domestic passports containing their marriage stamps confiscated and canceled. On the advice of lawyers — and with the financial support of LGBT activists — Voitsekhovsky and Stotsko fled to Amsterdam, without even saying goodbye to their family. They declared themselves as asylum seekers to police at Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport, and have been living as refugees ever since. Last week, after six months of uncertainty and adjustment to life in a place very different to Russia, they received their permanent resident cards. “We went to gay parade in Amsterdam and there we could hold hands in public for the first time in the street because we saw same sex couples — females, males — who were also walking holding hands without any problems,” said Yevgeny Voitsekhovsky. “No one was abusing them by shouting insults behind their backs. No one was threatened physically. We know that we are in a safe environment.” Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News Check out VICE News for more: http://vicenews.com Follow VICE News here: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/vicenews Twitter: https://twitter.com/vicenews Tumblr: http://vicenews.tumblr.com/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/vicenews More videos from the VICE network: https://www.fb.com/vicevideo

Subscribe to VICE News now: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News When Russian President Vladimir Putin banned gay "propaganda" in June last year, Russia's LGBT community went from being a stigmatized fringe group to full-blown enemies of the state. Homophobia becoming legislation means it's now not only accepted in Russia but actively encouraged, which has led to a depressing rise in homophobic attacks and murders. The main aim of the law, which essentially bans any public display of homosexuality, is to prevent minors from getting the impression that being gay is normal. Which means that, if you're young and gay in Putin's Russia, you're ostracized and cut off from any kind of legal support network. In part 1 we get a ride with Artem, a young driver for Moscow's gay taxi service "Our Taxi", meet Nikita, a 17-year-old activist who has been labeled a "propagandist" because of his LGBT rights YouTube channel, and Yulia, a young lesbian who started LGBT self defense classes after her favorite gay bar in Moscow was attacked by about 20 armed men in October 2012.

Yevgeny Voytsekhovsky and Pavel Stotzko became the first officially registered gay couple in Russia, where same sex marriage is illegal, thanks to a loophole in Russian legislation. They got married in Copenhagen and then got their Certificates validated in a registry in Moscow. One day after they shared the news duting an interview on an independent Russian TV channel ‘Dozhd’ , their apartment in Moscow was raided by police, who confiscated their passports, claiming them void, and basically threatened Yevgeny and Pavel. They also opened a legal case against them. A group of LGBT activists has come that night to men’s apartment to support them and on the same day the couple fled the country on the premise of feeling unsafe.

The experiment set out to recorded how fellow Ukrainians respond to public displays of affection by gay couples. Zoryan Kis and Tymur Levchuck replicated the experiment from a video released by a LGBT group in Russia. Kis and Levchuck found that beyond the actions of a small aggressive far-right minority the majority of Ukrainians were tolerant to their display. Nic Zecevic and Margaret J.

Over the past year, authorities in the Russian republic of Chechnya have reportedly arrested dozens of gay men, in some cases imprisoning them for weeks and torturing them with electric shocks. Combined with a 2013 law banning what President Vladimir Putin's government called "homosexual propaganda," the Chechen crackdown seems to indicate that Russia is becoming increasingly homophobic even as LGBT rights are being strengthened in many other countries. Still, the increased visibility of LGBT people in some quarters of Russian and international media may be changing views in some parts of the country. On this edition of Global Journalist: a look at gay rights in Russia, including an interview with the first openly gay comedian to appear on Russian television. Joining the program: *Pasha Zalutski, a Belarussian comedian who has appeared on Otkryti MikrofonI (Open Mic), a talent show on the Russian network THT. *Andrew Kramer, a Russia correspondent for the New York Times. *Tanya Lokshina, Russia program director for Human Rights Watch. *A spokeswoman for the Russian LGBT Network, a group helping gay men who were arrested in Chechnya. She asked that she not be identified for security reasons. Produced by Rachel Foster-Gimbel and Edom Kassaye

Russians lawmakers are considering making it a crime for gay men to come out of the closet having drafted an amendment to the country's 2013 "LGBT Propaganda Law" that would make it against the law for gays to “demonstrate their expressed sexual preferences in public places.” The law would only apply to gay men and not lesbians.

The Iron Closet: Russia's draconian anti-gay laws effectively licensing violent vigilante gangs to target the LGBT community. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures Brutally beaten and forced to drink their own urine while being filmed for internet broadcasts, homosexuals lured into the hands of vigilante groups like Occupy Pedofilyaj (who uniformly view gays as paedophiles) should be very afraid. But they can't expect any help from the police: if they're caught the police arrest the victims and not their torturers. "The objective is to look for paedophile-minded residents and film a video that will them leave them publicly disgraced", Yekaterina Zigunova, of the group Occupy Pedofilyaj, boasts unashamedly. The encouragement and free hand they're given is one of the more confronting features of Russia's anti-gay stance. The law has left homosexuals living in fear. Even an expression that you believe in equal rights, or any public display, could result in arrest. "Theoretically it's possible to start hauling us into the police station today", Masha Gessen says about co-habiting with her partner. But they're not giving up and see the Olympics as a great opportunity to confront Russian society. As one activist, Polina, says, "I would call on Games participants to come here and to do visible things in support of LGBT people. Only this way will we have a public discussion".

United Nations human rights experts are urging authorities to investigate reports about gay men being targeted and detained in the Russian republic of Chechnya. According to a human rights activist and a leading opposition newspaper in Russia, there have been increasing reports of gay men disappearing in Chechnya since March. Dmitry Peskov, who is Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, told reporters in a conference call that the Kremlin has no legitimate information on any such problems in Chechnya. http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/14/europe/un-chechnya-gay-men/index.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov alluded to recent media reports of arrests and killings of gay men in the Chechen republic, during a meeting with President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Wednesday. The leader stated that the claims were "unconfirmed facts." "So-called good people are writing that in our republic, it is even awkward to say, the people are being detained and killed" he stated. He went on to make an example of a man named Tepsurkayev Hasu who was reported to have been killed while he was "alive and healthy at home." In early April, the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta published a report of mass arrests of gay men in the Chechen Republic. The article claimed that around 100 people were detained while at least three people were killed. Novaya Gazeta later published material on special prisons for homosexuals, where they have been allegedly tortured. SOT, Ramzan Kadyrov, Head of Chechen Republic (Russian): "I would like to inform you that those provocative articles that are written about the Chechen Republic, about the people, about those events that allegedly take place, about detentions." SOT, President Vladimir Putin, President of Russia (Russian): [off camera] "Which ones?" SOT, Ramzan Kadyrov, Head of Chechen Republic (Russian): "So-called good people are writing that in our republic, it is even awkward to say, the people are being detained and killed. They even gave one name – Tepsurkayev Hasu, he is our main person in ideology, the Sufi. They said that he was killed but he is at home. They insulted him first then accused authorities of killing him, and he is alive and healthy at home." SOT, Ramzan Kadyrov, Head of Chechen Republic (Russian): "Such unconfirmed facts around the republic happen two or three times a year, and since the beginning of the year, this is the first situation of this kind. Generally, in terms of security, our republic is in good standing. We do not have street crime; we do not have serious terrorist threats. The republic, so to speak, is confidently moving forward." SOT, Vladimir Putin, President of Russia (Russian): "But there was a demonstration [against the crime], there was an attack on the unit of the National Guard so not all the questions apparently have been solved, but, of course, all of them are being resolved. I see that they are resolved well and of course it should be done on the basis of economic and social development. The fact that you manage to comply with the decrees of the President of Russia from 2012 is very important."

Part of his activism deals with teaching young homosexuals how to protect themselves online, particularly against vigilante groups like the neo-Nazi Occupy Pedofilyay who arrange meetings with gay men and teenagers, then make YouTube clips in which they abuse them, using methods ranging from "urine therapy" to fatal assaults.

Down with Gender-bending! HD with English Subs. Blockbuster Russian 2015 documentary EXTREMELY CRITICAL of LGBT Agenda. Full description of film below, or read this article about it: http://russia-insider.com/en/exclusive-major-russian-tv-documentary-sodom-blasts-lgbt-hd-video-eng-dub/ri16005 A hard-hitting, major recent Russian film which provides a devasting look into the LGBT movement worldwide. Highly recommended. This blockbuster, 1 hour documentary originally aired on Russian prime-time TV in May of 2015, causing a sensation in Russia at the time. It has never appeared anywhere in English, until now, subtitled or dubbed. This translation is dubbed. It is available exclusively on the Russia Insider Youtube channel. It had a substantial 6 figure budget, allowing Russian journalists to travel widely - to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Italy, Australia, Germany, and elsewhere, to do ground-breaking, original investigation into the LGBT movement. The film is interesting on a number of levels. It was made by Arkady Mamontov, a popular TV host and investigative journalist famous for his ground-breaking documentaries. Mamontov is a conservative Christian. His best known recent film is about the Greek orthodox monastic island of Athos (in Russian only). He has also done a lot of work on Russian social issues, and on the Ukraine conflict. The film reflects popular attitudes towards LGBT in Russia, and is interesting in that it shows what Russians are told about LGBT and Americans in their mainstream media. The dub is by Russians who speak good English, and is not bad at all. After a somewhat dull intro section recalling the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, the film gets interesting. It leads with a comical interview with an unsuspecting German Lutheran priest in Berlin with a taste for sodomy who explains how Christianity does not actually proscribe this peculiar predilection. It then profiles Scott Lively - an anti-LGBT activist who takes the Russian journos on a guided tour of lavishly funded Washington DC lobbying organizations pushing LGBT issues deep into the bowels of the the US government (no pun intended). Next comes a spooky parade of homosexual weirdos - gays being married in Germany, an artificial insemination clinic in LA, grotesque sex freaks at a parade in San Francisco, at which a skeptical mailman tells an Adam and Steve joke, a truly disturbing video of a gay man fake-suckling newborn infants, taken from their surrogate mother minutes earlier, and a painfully awkward scene of a sodomite male couple showing how they raise their children. We then go to Italy, to talk to a reformed homosexual who realized he had been sucked into a giant hoax and went straight while embracing Christianity, and see a profile of the massive anti-gay movement there, which brings millions into the streets to protest the advance of LGBT, as well as a smaller similar movement in Germany. Next is Moldova, a small eastern European country sandwiched between Ukraine and Romania, and a battle-ground state in the US-Russia power struggle, where we hear about how US diplomats put heavy pressure on the local government to allow gay parades and the advancement of LGBT issues to a skeptical populace. Next is the country of Georgia, where there is also a very strong anti-LGBT movement due to the extremely conservative attitudes towards sexual roles in society. The film exposes how, while he was in power, the former president Mikheil Saakashvili, institutionalized sodomy as a method of torture in Georgian prisons against political opponents, showing a man being sodomized. Unsurprisingly, Saakashvili's popularity in Georgia didn't last, and now he has been installed as the mayor of Odessa, Ukraine, by American neocons, much to the chagrin of certain members of the government in Kiev. The film argues that the sodomy technique is an American export, used in Iraq, Georgia, and Ukraine by Americans and their clients deliberately in countries with conservative social mores, where such an event is the ultimate humiliation for a man, worse even than death. The film closes with a brief profile of how Russian society rejects LGBT, quoting Christian teaching on marriage: "A union, between a man and a woman, granted by God, gives humanity a chance to continue life. There is a deep sense to the biblical passage 'Be fruitful and muliply, and fill the earth'" Russia Insider website http://russia-insider.com/en
