When Russia made it illegal to express oneself as part of the LGBT community in fear of harming "the children", they not only restricted expression but made the lives of Russian LGBT much more dangerous. Groups felt like it was permission to attack or publicly humiliate people they knew to be part of the LGBT community. Videos are being posted on Youtube of people physically and psychologically bullying gays, lesbians, trans, and bisexuals. We cannot let Russia get away with such a breach of human rights and we must fight for the rights of our sisters, brothers, and people in Russia. Join us at the Russian Embassy to protest. Bring flags, bring signs, bring chants, and bring your brightest smiles as we take on the tyranny of Putin!!
