Activists Around The World Protest Russia's Anti-Gay Laws

"Today's success is just the beginning."

Posted on

Yesterday, protests were held across the globe in solidarity with Russian LGBT activists.

Allout.org

The protests were organized by the gay rights organization All Out. "Today's success is just the beginning. The movement has gone global and I am thrilled to see governments around the world pledge to take our message of love directly to president Putin at the G20 meetings this week." said Andre Banks, Executive Director of All Out.

Yesterday morning, Lady Gaga voiced her support.
