On the 27th of May, Viktor Babkin held a single picket in Omsk. He rallied in the city-center with a poster, saying “Homosexuality is not Immoral, Homophobia is Immoral”. The day Babkin chose was not coincidental. On the 27th of May in 1993 Russian authorities decriminalized homosexuality. In the Soviet Penal Code voluntarily engagement in same-sex relations was prosecuted under the article number 121. With his protest, Babkin aimed to attract attention to the problematic position of the LGBT citizens in Russia and to show his solidarity with the LGBT community.
