The bill on "propaganda of LGBT and pedophilia" is officially supported by the government


The Government Commission on Legislative Activities has officially supported the bill on responsibility for LGBT and pedophilia propaganda. On September 26th, State Duma deputy Aleksandr Khinshtein announced this on his Telegram channel.

Weve already worked out all the comments made with our colleagues, they will be taken into account when submitting the initiative to the State Duma, Khinshtein wrote.

To recall, as of today this criminal liability is limited to propaganda of LGBT among children. Khinshtein and colleagues on the IT committee want to extend it to any propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations, regardless of age.

The bill proposes:

  • amend the wording of the current article 6.21 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (Propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors), and label it as Propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations and (or) preferences;

  • introduce an administrative liability for the propaganda of pedophilia;

  • introduce an administrative liability for dissemination among minors information on non-traditional sexual relations and (or) preferences.

Official support for the bill to pass is a necessary procedure for the reception of such initiatives, without that further consideration in the State Duma is impossible, that sais, it is an another step towards the admission of the bill on LGBT propaganda among minors, said the lawyer, coordinator of monitoring and advocacy of the LGBTQ+ Group Coming Out,

For now, there is no more precise information, Coming Out will continue to follow the events on this matter.
