Russia Shuts Down LGBT Youth Support Group

In accordance to Russia’s extreme anti-LGBT propaganda law, the Kremlin has shut down an online LGBT support group for teens. The website, Children 4o4, was taken offline with little explanation, but the website’s founder believes it’s because it violated the country’s “gay propaganda” law. “Most likely, the site will be suspended in Russia in the near future,” the site’s founder, Yelena Klimova wrote on social media. “We shall keep working.”

This isn’t the first time that the government has tried to shut down the website. In September 2015, it was blocked, but another group quickly emerged after Klimova was fined $755 for setting up the group. [GSN]
