Belarusian is the official language of Belarus and one area of Poland. It is one of the three Eastern Slavic languages belonging to the Indo-European family. The name of the country and language comes from the expression of Old Belarusian, Belaya Rus, whose translation into English is White Rus. Spoken by eight million people, despite official support, it is losing speakers in favor of Russian, a language with which our Belarusian Gay Dictionary shares terms.
Being a country of Soviet influence, the situation of LGBT people is better than in other neighboring countries, despite social rejection. With the independence of the Soviet Union, in 1994, all consensual sexual practices between adults were legalized, and subsequently, the gender change in personal documentation. Belarus has one association and a publication to support the community, and since 1999 they celebrate the Gay Pride, not without difficulties on the part of the authorities. In 2017 opened the first support center for the LGBT community in Minsk, the capital.

The word Pidaras (Підарас) derives from piederast (педэраст) which translation into the English language is pederast, and it is a derogatory expression quite common in the nations that we call pederasts countries, which are those that with their most frequent insults try to relate male homosexuality with pedophilia. It should be borne in mind that statistics show that most pedophiles are heterosexual men who assault girls in their proximity, however, it is very easy to justify homophobia behind a false pretense of protecting children.
