Gay Rights Comedy “Pride” Playing in Russia

(via The Hollywood Reporter)

Apparently, it’s just got a really stern rating in the theaters where it’s playing. 

While there are very many homophobic laws currently in place in Russia, the very funny Pride from last year is screening, apparently to favorable reception. 

The film from last year tells the he story of gay activists in the U.K. joining forces with miners in the 80s and is a pitch perfect feel good period piece dramedy. Many pro-gay movies apparently get protested in Russia, but Pride hasn’t seen any protests yet.

We can only hope that is the start of trend in Russian cinemas.
