Lesbian Murder Spurs Kazakhstan Activist To Build Wall Around City Gay Bar

Lezzyu

The recent murder of a married lesbian woman has incited local anti-gay activists in Kazakhstan to protest same-sex marriage by building a brick wall in front of a gay nightclub in the country’s largest city, Almaty.

According to Radio Free Europe, the protest came 10 days after the murder of Kristina Chernysheva (pictured left), a woman who made headlines last year for her symbolic marriage to her partner, Karolina (pictured right) — “it was the first-known, public same-sex ‘wedding’ in Kazakhstan.”

Chernysheva was reportedly dismembered and burned; three women including Karolina have been detained by police in relation to the murder.

The owners of the club reportedly did not call police over the erection of the brick wall, nor have they taken any other responsive action. No word on whether they left the wall standing.

  1. Sounds like a country where the arrested women might only be guilty of being gay.

  4. Yes because rather than it being the fault of an intolerant psychopath, these anti-gay protesters would rather fault a club (aka a hotbed of militant gay propaganda, corrupting young minds and souls).
    This sort of reactionary response shows why people like that are dangerous. Nothing can change their minds, but they're conspicuously absent on other social issues too.
    After all Jesus said we have to follow priests like sheep.
    No wait he didn't

  7. Almaty. Unlikely there is a gay bar in any other city in Kazakhstan.
    This story is just too weird.
