Gays Banned from Shopping at St. Petersburg Store

Gays are banned from shopping at “Bread and Salt,” a natural food store opened by German Sterligov, a prominent conservative Orthodox activist in St. Petersburg, Russia. A carved wooden sign that says “Entrance Barred for Faggots” sits at the front of the store, reports Russia’s Afisha.

At the store opening on April 7, Sterligov greeted a crowd of several dozen with an announcement that he would open more shops across St. Petersburg. He also pledged his support for President Vladimir Putin as well as President Donald Trump.

“Trump is a traditional man and in our time that is enough for us to support him as president of the USA,” Sterligov said.
