Rammstein Members Kiss During Moscow Show, Violating Russia’s Anti-LGBTQ Laws


Rammstein guitarists Paul Landers and Richard Kruspe protested Russia’s heinous anti-LGBTQ laws in the best possible way this past Monday, July 29: they kissed on stage during the band’s concert in Moscow.

The kiss was in direct defiance of Russia’s “gay propaganda” law, which was passed and enacted in 2013. The law makes it illegal to present any “non-traditional” (i.e., heterosexual) sexual act as “normal,” allegedly in the name of protecting children.

What consequences, if any, Landers and Kruspe will face as a result of their dramatic protest remains unclear. But holy shit, you gotta love these dudes.
