is it hard being gay in russia
Openly to public - hard, openly to family and close friends - very easy. But only close friends, as soon as I decided to tell my “friends” in school about it, well… I think you understand why I put the commas there. And again only close friends and family, cause my relative (won’t say who) was a bit homophobe, but recently hearing an offensive joke (not about me) from her friend, I noticed she didn’t laugh, as she would usually do to try to maintain the atmosphere, she changed the subject. She’s also been really supportive ever since. In short - just don’t tell anyone but the ones you really trust and you’ll be fine.
