Lyosha was one of the key speakers along with other activists.

Some quotes from his speech:

“Public educators portrayed us as peadophiles” says @AlanQAF of @rusalgbt, who left his home Russia after being persecuted because of his sexuality.

“It was popular to say I was an agent of @HillaryClinton” says @AlanQAF, who was driven to flee Russia to take asylum because of his sexuality #LGBT #OpenlyNews
