Thank you, Carl, for that lovely interview between a young and elder man. The questions and answers moved me, both in their honesty with each other, and their clarity of experience.
It's always important to remember our past and to make sure it's not forgotten.
One of my all-time favorite novels, Earthly Powers by Anthony Burgess, opens in Malta with one of the best first sentences I've run across:
It was the afternoon of my eighty-first birthday, and I was in bed with my catamite when Ali announced that the archbishop had come to see me.
Andrew, unfortunately I think the vast majority of the Russian population is quite intolerant toward LGBTQ's. As a country, they haven't moved socially forward with this issue as other countries have. When you have the influence of the ultra-conservative Russian Orthodox Church and a bigoted, tyrannical government working in tandem to shape the social views of the entire country, the general population doesn't know any better. Media is strictly controlled and dissenting opinions are not tolerated. Generation after generation is brainwashed to be homophobic. That's a difficult cycle to break. It's so troubling to see this kind of systemic hatred.
I also wonder how large of a role the Russian Orthodox Church has had in shaping people's attitudes there.

"Just recently, California - the most liberal state in the USA by the way - proposed to facilitate the granting of green cards to Russian perverts," said TV host Andrei Afanasyev.

I think the rat race is getting much worse, and young people are more than ever unable to look outside their own bubble.
