A4A : Our Poor Russian Comrades.
Canada is a great country, yes we have our fair share of oppression. But nothing like what’s happening to our comrades in Russia. We are a diverse peoples. Who welcome cultures from around the world. Who celebrate the sexuality and individuality of all of our people.
As a Gay man with Aspergers, my gayness has never been a problem here. I have a committed relationship of which I can freely travel to our local gay neighbourhood, if I so choose to do those things. I can hold his hand. I can kiss him and I can even go to our city hall and have our homophobic mayor marry us. We have these simple choices.
The Russian government recently have imposed a law that prevents any of these things from happening. I’m sure your all aware of the drama unfolding. Although the law does not say we can not be gay, it does send a message to Russian citizens that Gay people are bad. Abuse has ensued. Russians would argue the law protects the children.
Over the past few weeks I have noticed an upsurge in the number of Russian nationals that have been sending me messages here on Adam4Adam.com it’s means things are not good. AlI can say is WELCOME TO CANADA.
In a recent article in our national news paper it was written, “Canada accepts gay asylum-seekers in the same way as it accepts members of any other persecuted group, like a religious or ethnic minority. Asylum-seekers can file a claim after they arrive in Canada because they face persecution by their government, or because they are persecuted by others and the government does not offer protection.”
It was announced that Canada would favour sexual refugees. That also includes Jamaica, Haiti, Iran, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Uganda, Malaysia, Zimbabwe, Morocco, Lebanon, Iraq.
