URGENT: today in Russia, a terrible bill passed in the Russian parliament’s lower house that censors all things considered “gay”. It’s our local partners’ worst nightmare and we need your help. 

This vote comes off the back of two brutal anti-gay murders in Russia, and the trial of a major LGBT rights organisation today.

Tell world leaders to STOP the crackdown, add your name:


This really is happening, and it’s scary as hell.

Update June 12: the situation is worsening. Russia has just passed a new anti-gay law makes it illegal even to say the word “gay”.  People in Russia standing up against the crackdown are urging All Out members to keep growing the petition to help draw the attention of world leaders and the media.”

spread this like the plague 

does nobody realise that sexual orientation is the same as religious views and this is similar to how the holocaust started with anti-semitism in Nazi Germany. why is it now not okay to abuse or physically restrict someone because of their religion but lawfully expected to do so toward someone of a certain sexuality?

This is fucking outrageous! I’m not sure our country’s government is sane. I’m actually out of words right here.
