GALHA vice-president speaks out against Russian homophobia

GALHA vice-president Michael Cashman MEP, who is president of the European Parliament's 'intergroup' on gay and lesbian rights, has spoken out condemning the statements that have come from Moscow during the past week.

"I will be raising this with the Human Rights Committee and the Foreign Affairs Committee in the European Parliament, as well as the Commission," he said. "This kind of language and behaviour is totally unacceptable and gives an appalling insight into the discrimination, hatred and intolerance that the LGBT community face every day in Russia."
