A gay rights activist waves a damaged rainbow flag during gay pride in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg, Florida? Or Russia? What’s the difference anymore

Florida most likely. Sure, keep Russia in your thoughts during pride month but I don’t think that is where this was taken.

The difference is… Enormous? Cultural? Legislative? Political? 
And it is trivializing the suffering Russian LGBT people endure to imply otherwise. (they have literal concentration camps!? it is illegal to say the word gay in public?!)

Here is the source of the image, taken by a Russian photographer in Russia.
It was my bad for not including it in the first place, but that doesn’t mean we can afford to imply Florida and Russia are the same places in regards to LGBT people, it is irresponsible and quite literally doesn’t make any sense and I won’t hear of it.
