Ukraine backs off gay-gag law (for now)

Ukraine backs off gay-gag lawBY STEVE WILLIAMS

Lawmakers in the Ukraine this week failed to vote on a controversial law that would have banned mention of LGBT identity in public.

Law 8711, largely unchanged from when it was proposed last June, would make it illegal to engage in the so-called spreading of homosexuality by “holding meetings, parades, actions, demonstrations and mass events aiming at intentional distribution of any positive information about homosexuality.”
