Little Big

The punk-pop band “Little Big” will represent Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020.

After the band’s entry “Uno” was released online, LGBT+ website “PinkNews” praised it for standing “in solidarity with trans people” and “trolling the man behind Chechnya’s gay purges”. But is “Little Big” really standing for LGBT+ rights?

Lithuanian blog Geizeris accidentally discovered this video footage featuring “Little Big” members, including the lead singer Ilya Prusikin, attending Brussels Pride in 2017.

We were shocked by the rhetoric that group members use among themselves to describe LGBT+ people. We are also very sorry that homophobic group members are mistakenly perceived as allies by some members of LGBT+ community.

You could turn on English subtitles to the video.
