EVERY DAY ON THE INTERNET SOMETHING HAPPENS: someone releases clips, someone launches hashtags, and someone says smart (or not so) things - and we focus on the most important or just curious.
Sasha Kazantseva, co-founder of the Opened LGBT zine and author of the telegram channel Washed My Hands, launched a flash mob #myLGBTchildhood on Instagram. Under this phrase and #what has grown, she calls on LGBT adults to talk about their childhood, awareness of themselves and their identity, since modern Russian legislation prohibiting "propaganda" to minors makes LGBT children and adolescents practically invisible.
“In such isolation, LGBT children and LGBT adolescents can feel particularly lonely and stigmatized,” says Sasha. - The funny thing is that if we formally “cannot” address children and adolescents directly, then we are free to dispose of our own children's photographs as we want. The #myLGBT childhood flash mob is a way to remind us that LGBT children live next to us right now and that caring for them is very important."
