On Saturday 11 November, the six were leaving the Fourth LGBTIQ+ Family Conference, organized by LGBTIQ group, Resource.

One of the injured was prominent activist Zoya Matisova. She recently joined the board of the Russian LGBT Network.

The Network’s director, Mikhail Tumasov, said some of the victims were knocked to the ground with minor injuries. Police and ambulance were called to the scene.

It is still unclear what was used in the attacks, it was originally thought to be some kind of acid. Tumasov said it smelled like acetone.

The group are trying to figure out how the attacker knew about the location of the conference.

‘I believe there was a person – a spy – who pretended to be an LGBTI person to get the correct information about the event which was hidden from the public,’ Tumasov told Gay Star News.

I know this has been said a million times, but I'll never be able to understand the obsession homophobes have with us. :deadbanana2: 

 

It's truly mind-boggling the great lengths these people will go.

Why is throwing acid on people we don't agree with becoming in-vogue now? I swear I've seen like 3-4 examples across the globe in the past year

 

Either way, this is horrible. F*** Putin and Russia and their abysmal human rights
