RUSSIA: A BILL TO SILENCE MILLIONSEDIT: Okay guys, apparently this law only concerns St Petersburg, and not all of Russia. More info here=> http://lezgetreal.com/2011/11/st-petersburg-russia-contemplating-silence-the-gays-bill/ It doesn't make it less horrible, but it is a small relief. /EDIT
I'm going to make a shout on something very important happening right now:
"In 48 hours, political leaders in Russia will vote on a law that makes speaking out as a gay, lesbian or trans person ILLEGAL. Because Russia is a large and powerful nation, the international community has stayed silent. If thousands of us raise our voices, they will be forced to speak out and stop this horrific law."
You'll understand why I can't help but post this everywhere in the hope to help in this crucial moment.
