One of club’s owners caused a stir earlier this month when a selfie she took kissing her girlfriend with an anti-LGBT lawmaker in the background went viral.
The couple were flying from Moscow to St. Petersburg when they spotted St. Petersburg city councilman Vitaly Milonov, one of Russia’s most outspoken anti-LGBT politicians, in a neighboring row and snapped a selfie of themselves in protest.
Guests celebrate a birthday party at Infinity, according to the caption posted by user InfinityKseniya.
“Attention! We only let members 18+ into the group. If we did not admit you into the group and you are over 18, write one of the administrators with a photo of your face on the background of your passport so that your birthdate is visible. We will only add you after these procedures verifying you are over 18,” Infinity’s group page read when accessed Thursday.
“A new forced selfie. Ready for the defense #antihomophobia,” InfinityKseniya captioned a photo from the prosecutor’s office.
“Let’s take a few minutes to write complaints to the prosecutor’s office about the lesbo club where sodomites corrupt underage girls. By the way, it’s employees of that particular club who staged a provocation a few days ago: in front of the passengers of Moscow-St. Petersburg flight, they demonstrated their perverse inclinations that caused a scandal on the internet,” a message posted to the group reads, according to a screenshot published by TV Rain.
The post includes a link to the St. Petersburg prosecutor’s office website and instructions on how to file a complaint.
“Some anonymous people who’ve probably never been to our club before simply tossed unnecessary work onto the prosecutors, distracting them from really important matters,” Alexandra Stepanova, one of the club’s directors, told the Russian news site Fontanka. “During the checks, they did not identify any violations. [Russian government communications watchdog] Roskomnadzor is currently checking our group on Vkontakte for the presence of violations.”
