Mayor Of Sochi Says There Are No Gays In His City

When asked about the gay people in Sochi (host of the winter Olympics), the city’s mayor, Anatoly Pakhomov told a Russian newspaper: “We don’t have them in our town.”
However a BBC Panorama reporter John Sweeney visited a gay bar in Sochi the night before he interviewed the mayor—and met a Drag queen named Madame Zhu-Zha whom said, “There are very many clubs for gay people in Moscow – in Sochi we have two gay clubs as well. In some places there’s serious prejudice against gay people. In other places it’s not as bad.”
When challenged, the mayor had this to say: “I am not sure, but I don’t bloody know them.”
