Talking of LGBT community security Anna underlines that it needs to be more open and ready for a dialogue with the society. It would give people a chance “to accept, understand and hear” lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender people.

Also Anna raised an issue of European integration importance for LGBT. “When you understand that your country goes either West where people like you are safe or East where the legislation criminalizing [it] is adopted you can’t help but being scared. Any reasonable person draws conclusions and makes their choice.”

Anna Leonova believes that activists and action groups are the future of LGBT community as they understand better what is important for the community as such.
