Rysk TV-journalist kom ut som homosexuell på TV - och fick omedelbart sparken

"Somebody should do it," he said. "I decided it's time to be open for me. That's it."
He told Snob.ru that he felt like a hypocrite after covering the so-called gay propaganda law on a show.
"The meaning of this whole story we are discussing now is that throughout my whole life, I've been struggling with myself," Krasovsky said. "And this — as you call it — coming out is just another battle with myself, with my own hypocrisy, my own lies, and my own cowardice."
He said after making the announcement at the end of the show, Angry Guyzzz, the audience and the crew applauded. He said he then went into his dressing room and cried for 20 minutes before being fired a few hours later.
"They immediately blocked all my corporative accounts, my email. Literally immediately, overnight," Krasovsky said. "They deleted not only my face from the website, but also all of my TV shows, as if I’d never really existed. The next day I wrote to [network head Sergey] Minaev that I was totally shocked. Because it takes them half a day to put up a banner when I ask them to, and here we had such efficiency. One could say they can when they want to. Now they’ve put everything back, but you couldn’t say why, really."
