Russia: Drawing World Leaders’ Attention to St. Petersburg Anti-LGBT Bill

AllOut.org: “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. […] Join this call to leaders around the world to reach out to their counterparts in the Russian government – and ask them to reject this discriminatory and anti-democratic law.” So far, more than 158,000 people have supported this campaign; the goal is 175,000.
