Russia: Support for Marriage Equality, Gay Pride Drops to New Lows

Written by scott on March 12th, 2013

titleSome depressing news out of Russia. While most of the rest of the world grows progressively more gay friendly, support for marriage equality and gay pride seems to have plummeted in Russia, a new poll says. reports:

Around 85 percent of adult Russians said they were strongly against a law that would allow same-sex marriage, the Levada Public Opinion Center reported; 87 percent said they opposed the idea of holding regular gay pride events in their cities. Researchers claimed that the percent of supporters of same-sex marriage in Russia fell from 14 to just 5 percent over the past three years. The number of those who do not oppose gay pride events is a consistently low 6 percent.

Those numbers are worse than Poland’s.
