This documentary follows people from the LGBT community in Russia after new legislation in 2013 prohibited so-called gay propaganda in the country. We meet various people who have been attacked for being gay, get to know how hard they struggle, and how they try to live with being gay without making it public.Written by
Anger, Hatred, Disgust, Fear, Despair, Shame... The list could go on. The only downside to the documentary is there is no happy note to end on, but of course.. how could there be?
In fact, I was SO angry, it inspired me to write a song about it and how disgraceful people are still treated in the 21ST CENTURY simply because of who they love.
I'm not going to lie, I had some very evil thoughts in my mind about what I would do to these disgusting human beings if I had the power. Honestly, the level of anger brought me to tears because naturally, we are so helpless and there is nothing we can do.
The documentary definitely succeeded in its aims to shock, educate and upset people but only because there is not enough being done in this country for LGBT rights. Russia is not the only country, but it is the most prominent one that springs to mind on this subject.
