    I have no idea of what his intentions were then.
    All I know is the diary was about something the man did that has no bearing on his past actions.
    Sometimes people change for whatever reasons but I only know that he may have given hope to the oppressed people in Russia that at least someone cared enough to stand up & voice his opinion, one that must feel like a slap in the face to the homophobic powers that be in Russia.
    Kudos to him.
    He went to support the people of a community he belongs to.
    Stand up for your right, just stand up & fight
    Stand up if you`re gay, no matter what people say.
    And a gay young man was killed because he stood up.
    Isn`t that what it`s about.
    If not, I`m in the wrong diary.
    But if the time ever comes where you need someone to stand up for you & only one person steps forward, it will be me.

    I`m already against the next war.
