    In Nizhny Tagil, members of the Just Russia — Patriots — For Truth party bought out the remaining copies of books from the Chitay-Gorod stores, which, in their opinion, contained “LGBT propaganda”. We are talking about the books of Andre Aciman “Call Me by Your Name” and “Harvard Square”, “They both die in the end” by Adam Silvera, “Leah: life is off the notes” by Becky Albertalli and others. All of them have an age limit of “18+”.

    The most known to the general public from this list is the first book — Call Me By Your Name was adapted into a movie starring Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer. In the center of the plot of the book — a romantic relationship between 17-year-old Elio and 24-year-old graduate student Oliver, who is coming for a summer internship with his father.

    According to the representative of the local branch of the party, Alexander Solovyov, the books were purchased at the personal expense of party members at the request of the local diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church. Information appeared on the network that books could be destroyed, for example, burned, but, as Solovyov says, the decision has not yet been made.

    So far, the books have been handed over to the Nizhny Tagil diocese, whose representatives will examine the books for “the presence of LGBT propaganda and the absence of values ​​promoted by the church.” According to Solovyov, there is no question of burning books — what to do with them will be decided after an “analysis from the Russian Orthodox Church”.

    Before that, local activists also demanded that the store remove these books from the shelves and called for a boycott of the bookstore. Party members also applied to the prosecutor's office to “assess the content of these books”, but they have not yet received a response from the supervisory authorities.

    The original circulation of books was about five thousand copies. Party members bought up several hundred copies so that “they would not be distributed.” According to Solovyov, despite the labeling, children can still read the abstract and find out what these books are about.

    The news was commented by the “Center for the Protection of Citizens' Rights” expert on family, motherhood and childhood, Yevgenia Mikhailidi.

    We do not assess the psychological illness of these people, we are talking about the inadmissibility of LGBT propaganda. Books are in the public domain, there are no age restrictions on them. We consider this propaganda in its purest form, which means that we must protect our children by any means. The volume of the widespread literature is, of course, appalling,

    — the Real Tagil portal quotes her.

    The act of the party members is also discussed in the telegram.

    Members of the party, whose name no one can pronounce, therefore, from old memory, are called “Fair Russia”, sold out the print run of Call Me By Your Name. They themselves say for cover that they bought it in order to burn it, but we understand everything. Read, guys, read, the book is good, and the movie is even better,

    — Yegor Mikhailov wrote in his channel “Literature and Life”.

    In mid-July, a bill was submitted to the State Duma, which proposes to completely ban “the popularization of the denial of family values ​​and non-traditional sexual relations.”
