This report presents the results of monitoring of public discourse about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)1 issues in five countries: Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine,
conducted in late 2016 and early 2017. In all five countries it finds “hate speech” to be widespread in the media, online and propagated by influential public figures, including politicians. This reflects widespread violence, discrimination and hostility against LGBT people, reinforcing and exacerbating existing prejudices.
