The project “Children 404” has a web-site in the domain zone uncontrolled by the Russian authorities
Famous Russian project "Children 404" for homosexual adolescents has acquired their own website. Until this moment this initiative, created by an activist Lena Klimova, mainly worked through the social networks. We'd like to note that the website of the project located in ".com" domain zone, which means that it can't be controlled by the Russian authorities.
Klimova's project has been repeatedly accused of "propaganda of homosexuality" among minors. In the beginning of September pro-Putin movement "MediaGvardia", which is specialized in the identification of "inappropriate content", submitted inquiry to Roskomnadzor (the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media) and Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation РФ demanding to block the project's pages in the social networks.
"The existence of such groups violates the law, the agency should respond accordingly, – declared his conviction Vadim Dengin, the first deputy chairman of the Duma Committee on Information Policy. – No one should dare to break traditional family institute and promote non-traditional family relationships promote non-traditional family relationships".
Previously Lena Klimova was tried to be brought to administrative liability for "propaganda of homosexuality" by the infamous St.Petersburg's gay-fighter Vitaly Milonov.
The project is addressed to LGBT adolescents, namely to that people who suffered from the law on "homo propaganda" the most. It is forbidden to carry any positive non-heterosexual information to them, due to which they are, being already exposed to age crisis, facing violence, lack of understanding in the family and from peers, suffering even more.
The project "Children 404" started in March 2013. For today in social network "Vkontakte" the number of participants in this group has overstepped the 35 thousand people, in Facebook – 5 thousand.
New project's website a collection of letters from juvenile lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders, which contain their life stories – often cries for help. Now, thanks to the search system of the website these letters are sorted by tags, and easily can be found, especially if a visitor is interested in particular information from a particular country – because Lena Klimova and her team is being referred to not only by the Russian young people.
In the editorial there are many critical articles from Lena herself, as well as from her colleagues, including – the well-known civil society activist Ivan Simochkin.
In the website "Library" section collected a lot of useful materials on the nature of homosexuality, psychological support for LGBT people and history of researches on the subject. Among them – digest "An overview of current opinions on homosexuality" developed by UPO "Gay Alliance Ukraine".
We wholeheartedly wish the website successful operation and are ready to continue our cooperation.
