Russia Is Erasing Me
The articles about my story that were published in Russia, and possibly any mentioning of it, will be deleted by the publications responsible. So that Russians won't know about my heinous story and what I've done to be free and my true self. It is all about keeping the good old Russian values and traditions safe and intact.
A few months ago Roskomnadzor, the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media, announced that any media outlet having content about gays, lesbians or transsexuals, will be blocked if they don't delete it. The time has come. Starting September 2, 2023, the blocking of those reluctant to obey will begin. There is even a form on Roskimnadzor website where people can submit their complaints when they come across content talking about LGBT people.
How do I feel about it? I am grateful to the staff of Такие Дела, Бумага, Lenta.ru and DailyStorm for bringing my story to people of Russia. I am curious how soon these articles will be gone.
