Act Now For Russia’s Gay Community

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST TO HELP GET THE MESSAGE OUT.

Crisis in Russia: two brutal murders for being gay within weeks. One man was stabbed to death by neighbours, and a younger man was beaten to death with rocks after coming out.

The rise in attacks is happening as President Putin wages war on gays and lesbians. His government has banned Pride marches and is trying to bring in a new anti-gay law. And this Tuesday, a major Russian gay organisation will go on trial to fight closure.

Putin is getting away with the crackdown because there’s little international media attention and no real pressure from other world leaders.

We can work to get the crisis on the to do list of every world leader and onto the front pages of newspapers. I’ve just signed a big, global petition with All Out. Can you sign too before the trial on Tuesday?
