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.

Crisis in Russia: two brutal murders for being gay within weeks as the Russian government bans Pride marches and pushes a new anti-gay law. And this Tuesday, a major Russian gay rights organisation will go on trial to fight closure.

Russian people struggling against the crackdown are calling for help. They need international pressure and media attention. Can you help by signing the petition?

Signed in my email. I am waiting for more detailed information about the murders in Russia. I really wonder what the government will stand on this will be, will this finally be a turning point?

I just saw a documentary on PussyRiot fights with Putin. They were sentenced to 2 years in Siberia for doing a demonstration rock song in a Cathedral. These young women are really really brave. They are also fighting for the rights of same sex couples. Putin is a THUG and like a rabid dog he needs to be put down. TY JL noted.
