What you'll do
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 what it means to be gay in Russia, what difficulties and challenges we are facing at the moment, what victories we have already achieved, and in what aspects we need to make a lot of efforts to achieve equality and acceptance. 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. In the second part of the experience I will talk about the notorious law on gay propaganda, how it applied, and what risks it carriers for the community as a whole. 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. All my guests have the opportunity to get acquainted with the offline experience that I host for guests of my city and read the reviews here: https://www.airbnb.ru/experiences/202718

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
