Many social network users celebrated gay pride by splashing rainbow colors on their profile pictures. This was in lieu with the United States ruling to legalize gay marriage in all their 50 states.

While most people from the LGBT community are ecstatic about the news, I guess some of them who live in countries where gays and lesbians are still highly discriminated, wish that their countries too, would do the same. Because the fact remains that in several countries, you can be persecuted for being gay and for displaying actions related to homosexuality.

Russia, for instance, has always been hostile with the LGBTs.  And although they have decriminalized homosexual relationships in 1993, the government still implement very strict laws against them. For instance, the Kremlin passed a law in 2013 that forbade gay couples from adopting Russian-born children.

Artem Frantsuzov and Jay Babenko took part in a social experiment shot by ChebuRussiaTV to show how homosexuals are physically and verbally abused in their country. These are straight guys who bravely agreed to walk the historic streets of Moscow while holding hands to see how people would react to such scenario.

But after a few hours, the men, along with Nikita Rozhdestv who shot the video, stopped filming because they felt threatened.

So, can you imagine what it’s like for homosexuals to live in a country where the third sex are not openly accepted?

Watch the video and tell us what you think.
