Gay.Ru, a non-for-profit Moscow-based gay, lesbian and transgender group has existed since 1996. It started as a discussion group under the name Fido7.Ru.Sex.Gay in the amateur messaging network FIDO. This was the first ever forum where Russian-speaking gays could discuss their problems.
Our web-site features more than 15,000 articles and documents in Russian and 500 in English and updates daily. Gay.ru is visited by more than three million visitors yearly or over 30,000 hits a day, including weekends. We made Gay.Ru a place where our gay, lesbian, and questioning visitors can find such vitally important information as psychological aspects of coming out, coping with homophobia, safer-sex techniques; read life stories of fellow gays and lesbians and receive a response to their questions.
