Russia to ban public discussion of gay and transgender issues

Political leaders in St. Petersburg are about to vote on law that will make it illegal for any person to write a book, publish an article or speak in public about being gay, lesbian or transgender. The ruling party led by President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin could make millions of people invisible with the stroke of a pen.

Please support our GLBT sisters and brothers in russia by pressuring world leaders to convince the russian sto drop this idea.

please sign the petition at:

http://www.allout.org/en/actions/russia_silenced

and spread the world, rights hard won must be kept and built on

I signed. Without a second thought, I signed. What an utterly frustrating bill to even have to be fighting.

I wish I had more to say, but the whole concept is sapping my ability to speak in anything other than disbelieving, angry vocalizations. It is, very literally, a thought destroyer.

I've signed for what it's worth. I was in Moscow last week and most Russians despise Putin but feel (and are) powerless to change the system. Your average Boris is extremely homophobic and racist... so the issues is hardly likely to make any waves over there.
Russia is full of hypocrisy but they need not look far into history to find examples of genius among the LGBT community worldwide, who have contributed so much to the world. On the one hand they vaunt their artistic excellent and have some of the best collections of fine art, architecture, theatre yet deny the very crucible in which they are forged. Knuckle-dragging par excellence. Putin's regime will fail... we just have to be patient and hope it won't be too long.

I signed it for what little hope it will bring.

I emailed my transfriend in Moscow, but haven't had a response yet. Hope she is not in the gulag now.

She must be very brave - they are horribly homophobic and racist

There was a tramsgender store in the Moscow Green Zone that she patronized.

I just sent her an email in Russian, and a note in Russian on our common site.

She told me this is just one guy and he hates gays, lesbians, and bis as well as trans. She said no way is it going to be the whole country.
