The State Duma, Russia’s parliament, is to consider a bill on “propaganda of non-traditional relationships in media,” the parliament’s website says.
It is suggested that “sharing information aimed at disowning family values or promoting non-traditional sexual relationships” be banned in media.
Lawmakers also suggest that films which do not abide by the new law be not shown in cinemas. The bill is mostly supported by members of the Communist Party.
“Disowning family values, promotion of the so-called “childfree” concept and promoting non-traditional sexual relationships is a danger to the Russian society,” reads the explanatory note.
Current Russian law only prohibits “LGBT propaganda among underaged.”
