  •  Thanks Dave for diarying this (5+ / 0-)

    I saw it on my facebook feed yesterday and read the Fierstein op ed. I knew about the homosexual propaganda law, but the latest stuff is even more infuriating. One of the comments on the NYT article got me thinking about the Olympics: the commenter suggested that instead of a boycott that perhaps the various olympic teams could incorporate the rainbow somewhere into their uniforms in a quiet display of solidarity. I'd love to see that!

    Just now, George Takei posted a link on his fb page to some saddening and shocking photos from various Russian LGBT activist events that drive home the ugliness of the struggle.
