Ivan Vasiliev by Vladimir Vasilchikov for Vogue Russia, 2011.
“I usually ignore Anon comments specially the poisonous ones…But I feel that I need to answer to this horrible anon who called Ivan Vasiliev a closet queen. Ivan Vasiliev is not only a gifted dancer,he is also a brave one. He has criticized the way that things are in more that one occasion he even criticized russian system once. And now he make the nice gesture to support gay rights and queers attack him!, First he’s engaged with prima ballerina Natalia Osipova (Who happens to be a woman. So yes he is engaged to a woman…That’s of straight isn’t it?) Second straight male ballet dancers had this stigma of being closeted homosexuals so is brave of him to stood from gay rights knowing that many people is going to call him gay. You know it is amazing how homophobic gay people can be! And with this kind of attitude of attacking and calling gay to any straight person who supports gay rights It’s not wonder that many supporters prefer to stay away from the spotlight . Many heterosexual people can be open minded and supportive of gay rights movement and that doesn’t mean that they are closet homosexuals you know?”
