Gay tourists in Russia could now face two weeks in jail.

It is now literally illegal in Russia to say that you are gay.

Russia is about to hold the winter olympic games, and just to prepare, Vladimir Putin decided to make ANYTHING PRO-GAY punishable by up to 14 days in jail and being and then expelling you from the country. On top of that, there is a lot of violence against anything pro-gay in Russia as is. 

What qualifies as pro-gay?

  • kissing/hugging your partner (say, after winning a metal)
  • holding hands with your partner
  • rainbow clothing
  • mentioning your gay in an interview
  • a news reporter mentioning anyone being gay without it being negative.

those are just some things i can think of off the top of my head.

Anyone going to the winter olympics please just restrain from showing anything in public. I just want everyone to be safe and okay… :c

PLEASE SPREAD THIS AROUND SO PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF THIS!
not only for safety, but because this is really just not okay.

    I still can’t believe the IOC is allowing this to continue. We go from Pride House in London to this. Pull the fuck out...
