This year’s Miss Universe pageant is scheduled to be held at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia on Nov. 9, 2013 — but Bravo’s Andy Cohen won’t be there because of the country’s anti-gay laws.

“The law is that anyone under suspicion of homosexuality can be arrested,” he told E! Online, adding that he “didn’t feel right as a gay man stepping foot into Russia.”
