As per reports, Russia’s communications regulator Roskomnadzor warned Walt Disney Co (DIS) against distributing content of its short film, “Out”, which features a gay main character, stating it portrays harmful content to the children in Russia. Disney+ released “Out” in the United States last year.
A letter was sent to Disney noting that it was against Russian law to distribute information which “denies family values and promotes non-traditional sexual relationships” to children.
Even though same-sex relationships are legal in Russia, but a 2013 law bans disseminating “propaganda on non-traditional sexual relations” among young Russians. Disney remained unavailable to a request for comment.
