Many Russians and Russian-speakers around the world are cool and open; others are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex themselves. This is a Facebook group where you can network with these folks.
My family's Russian, we live in Germany. I really need people to talk with about Russian. I want to learn Russian so badly and I like what I've done so far a lot, but I'm wondering if I'll ever be able to love the language whole-heartedly. I dream of staying in St. Petersburg or Moskva for a few months, but my Russian mother already asked me not to, she's afraid for my health and I don't think I could live fearlessly either - Even though I'm well aware that homophobic violence isn't as common in those two cities. I could visit Russia for a week or two, but I wouldn't be able to stay. Also, inbefore stupid trolls: If all political power of a society is concentrated, it's no surprise xenophobia starts to rise. This could and does happen anywhere and is not inherently Russian.
Sadly, I don't have Facebook... Sucks.
