Wanja Kilber, a gay activist from german-russian LGBT group Quarteera, has used a speech from Yelena Mizulina in Leipzig last Saturday to protest her homophobic stance.
Kilber went to the stage – with artificial blood on his hands and a rainbow flag – and shouted in Russian and German: “Mizulina has the blood of young gays, lesbians and transsexuals on her hands”. He was then removed by security, whilst the unshaken author of the russian law against “gay propaganda” continued her speech.

Mizulina had visited the conference by right-wing magazine “Compact” together with other homophobes from Russia and France. Speakers included Beatrice Bourges, who radicalized the french movement against gay marriage.
Yelena Mizulina, author of the nationwide law against “gay propaganda” in Russia, is set to join other anti-gay campaigners from Russia and France at a conference in Leipzig, Germany this Saturday.
The Conference, titled “For the Future of the Family”, is organized by right-wing conspiracy magazine Compact in cooperation with the french-russian think tank Institut de la Démocratie et de la Coopération based in Moscow, Paris and New York. It already held a congress with Mizulina in France and supported the national movement against gay marriage, Manif pour touts.
Béatrice Bourges, one of the most influential spokespersons of the “Manif”-movement, who later got thrown out of the group because of her violent rhetoric, is also set to speak in Germany amongst other anti-gay and islamophobic speakers.
