Wat je gaat doen

We will begin our online experience and I will introduce myself with more details than in the description =)
In the first part of the experience, I will tell my guests about the first attempts to regulate the life of the LGBTQ community in Tsars Russia, a small but intense renaissance in the early years of the USSR and and the subsequent persecutions before the collapse.

In the second part of the experience I will talk about first years of modern Russia, About the freedom and equality of the nineties and early 2000s, about a sudden change in legislative measures in relation to the LGBTQ community, the notorious law on gay propaganda, Dima Yakovlev law and the results of society opinion after amendments voting 2020. I will talk about the differences between gay life in big cities and life in small cities and how the life of the LGBTQ community in the most advanced regions differs from the life of the LGBTQ community in the less advanced, such a Chechnya, Dagestan, etc. My goal is to show several points of view at once, so my guests can independently draw their own conclusions without being influenced by the media.

In the third part, I will try to answer all the questions of my guests about life in Russia, based on my experience, as I have been living here all my life, working in the LGBTQ sphere, contacting the community, and being the part of it.

I welcome everyone who came to my page! I'm Sasha, the organizer of my offline experience about the life of the LGBTQ+ community here in Russia and in St Petersburg in particular. Being the organizer of my experience for more than 3 years, I received only 5-star reviews, which shows my sincere passion for my work and exclusive responsibility for my guests. At the moment I decided to prove myself as an assistant to those who, like hundreds of thousands of people around the world, spend almost all their time at home, in 4 walls or for those who still do not have the ability to travel

A fascinating look at what it is like as a gay person living out and proud in Russia. Aleksandr shared his unfiltered perspective on the many changes over the years. We really enjoyed connecting with him and hearing his personal stories.

Aleksandr’s experience is incredibly personal and highlights the story of LGBTQ people throughout Russian history. It was both touching and educational. Thank you, Aleksandr!

Sasha is a courageous person who navigates LGBTQ equality in a difficult situation. He treats the topic with sensitivity and respect as he can emphasize with the current plight of LGBT rights in Russia. His sense of humor and optimism impresses me, and to be honest, it is difficult to imagine that bigotry and prejudice against sexual orientation still exists in the 21st century. Words cannot express my solidarity with the LGBTQ community in Russia, as I think what matters most in the ends are deeds and determination for change. If the unfortunate history of totalitarianism in the 20th century can teach us something, I sincerely wish that society will move towards a direction that our differences will all be embraced by concrete actions, and future generations will not brand equality as "political correctness". In the end, I just want to express that it is easy for me to sit in front of a computer and type words to support the Russian LGBTQ community in a democratic country, but it is difficult for people like Sasha who actually fight for their dignity and rights knowing that they are facing some unknown danger. Kudos to Sasha and wish the LGBTQ community in Russia all the best!

I have done nearly 40 Airbnb online experiences in the past several months, and all were great, but this one is the one that will stick with me the most. I love participating in these because I think it is so important to understand perspectives from all walks of life, and to learn the history and current events that are not taught in schools. Having the opportunity to hear Alexandr describe the history of gay life in Russia, as well as his experiences and feelings was so very enlightening. He was so open, and so "real" in terms of sharing his feelings, and that made this truly special. You can't get an understanding of what gay culture in Russia is like and how it has changed over the years by just reading about it. Words can't do justice to describe this experience. I can't recommend it highly enough.
