Greetings blogpickers! It’s friday and I hope you are getting ready for your weekend wherever you may be!
Today’s link comes from Russia, a country that seems to be taking many backward steps when it comes to equality. You’ll see in today’s link that they have banned pride, not just for this year but for the next 100 years.
I am sure that this seemed like a good idea to someone but it hardly seems like a sensible thing to have done. 100 years? Imagine what something like this will do to the self esteem of young LGBTQ people there. It is hardly going to give them any grounds for hope, which is likely what they wanted to do.
This shows us that there is still much to do around the world with regards to equality and that the fight should never cease.
Big love to you,
