"A Russian TV anchor was fired almost immediately after coming out as a gay man during a broadcast last week.
"I'm gay, and I'm just the same person as you, my dear audience, as President Putin, as Prime Minister Medvedev and the deputies of our Duma," KontrTV anchor Anton Krasovsky said directly into the camera during last Friday's broadcast."*
