The gay community around the world is rallying against Putin’s new wave of homophobia. These laws are translating into torture, beatings and abuse for gay and lesbian people across Russia – a horrendous situation that has to be stopped.
I went down to Whitehall, Central London, this weekend to talk to some of the protesters at the “Love Russia Hate Homophobia” protest. There was a lot of mixed feelings about the Winter Olympics in Sochi, some calling for a boycott, and some calling for active protests while at the games.
