Russian Band Releases Pro-LGBT Video

Russian band Sansara on Tuesday released a pro-LGBT video for their single “We Will Become Better.” The video is about “two people who love each other but forbid themselves because of societal judgment around their relationship, and so unfortunately it cannot happen,” its writer Evgeny Primachenko told The Moscow Times. The clip has so far been received with “either absolute love or absolute hate,” Primachenko said. Primachenko said he feels “100% confident that things are going to get better” after the video’s release. Director Andrzej Gavriss was more doubtful, telling The Moscow Times: “You can’t change the world just like that. You have to go one step at a time.” Many Russian media outlets were afraid to cover the video because of Russia’s law banning displays of “gay propaganda,” Primachenko said.
