Gay and St.Petersburg

Jump to last reply

I'm an Italian student from Rome and I'm considering a 3-weeks trip in St.Petersburg to study in the SP state University. I will probably reside in an international hostel near the university.

The problem is, I'm a gay person and I know gay people are not really welcome in Russia. I've been to Riga two times to study russian and I've never had problems. I don't look "gay" and I have no intention of saying anything and respect their culture and believes.

I want to know if russian people can be inquisitive towards tourists's sexual orientation and if it could be dangeorous just to walk around being a gay person.

I know the question is silly, but I really need to take it into consideration...
