Gay people had a tough time until some of the rights were granted to them. Student protests of the 1970s were a period of change for the United States of America. It was the ideal time for activists to react fast and start creating special rights for gay people. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case with some of the other countries. One of the examples of negative attitude towards LGBTI community is definitely Russia. A few years ago, President Putin signed a law which bans gay ‘propaganda.’ This law forbids “giving children any information about homosexuality.” However, even though there are still some controversies about it, many countries have recognized gay people’s rights, giving them the same treatment as to straight people. Most of the countries that respect their rights are in Europe and, of course, the USA.
