Kyrgyzstan: “It is Impossible to Propagandize Homosexuality”

Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Kyrgyzstan, Citizen Media, LGBTQ+

Prominent Kyrgyzstani blogger Bektour Iskander reflects [1] [ru] on on the recent law banning gay ‘propaganda’ in Russia and speculations that some Kyrgyz human-rights NGOs are engaged in such propaganda:

It is impossible to propagandize homosexuality. Because a heterosexual cannot turn into a gay, even if she/he communicates with hundreds of gays every day…

A sexual orientation cannot be imposed or implanted onto people. Because it is not a political leaning or a musical preference. Because a person is born with it.
