WASHINGTON — The Russian government took its first action against a media company under its new law banning LGBT “propaganda,” warning a television station that its airing of a movie with gay themes violates the law.
According to The Hollywood Reporter:
Russia’s federal media oversight body, Roskomnadzor, on Thursday warned popular movie channel EvroKino after it aired 2007 French musical Les Chansons d’Amour (Love Songs).
The agency said the film contains “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations.”
But, this song, this one’s the winner:
