Help Stop #@$%phobic Bill in Russia

In Russia, the Legislative Assembly of the St. Petersburg region is thinking of attempting to amend their Law on Administrative Violations. This change focuses on the penalties for "public actions aimed at propaganda of sodomy, #@$%ism, bisexuality and transgenderness amongstminors." The amendment of the Law on Administrative Violations would be a direct violation of the freedom of expression and of assembly of these minors who are or seem to be #@$%, #@$%, bisexual, transgender or intersex. These groups of people are also known as LGBTI. It would also deny them their right
to non-discrimination and equality in law. Some other regions in Russia have already begun to consider this and few have even started to enforce this change to the law. Is it just to have their rights and freedoms stripped from them because of sexuality? Do you think that other countries, organizations or the United Nations should intervene?
