Gulya Sultanova - organizer of the Side by Side LGBT film festival St Petersburg. How is it possible to deal with equal rights issues while facing problems from the authorities and police to bomb threats and strong xenophobic attitude in the Russian society? Gulya says, “Even in this difficult context we remain committed and will continue to advocate for human rights and a tolerant society where sexual minority groups, individual freedom and choice are both respected and protected.”
