YouTube channel ChebuRussiaTV conducted a social experiment in Russia, filming two men holding hands and walking in Moscow. They are harassed and nearly beaten.
The video was created in reaction to gay marriage being legalized nationwide in the United States and is filmed in a similar way to Shoshana Roberts’ 10-hour walk through New York City. In the above video, two men decide to walk holding hands. They are continuously called “f**gots” and other derogatory names. At the end, a man walks through their hands red rover-style and a confrontation begins where they are almost beaten.
