The party led by Russian President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin just passed discriminatory legislation in St. Petersburg eliminating the freedom to speak publicly or assemble by lesbian, bi, gay and trans people. Now lawmakers in Moscow want to push the law nationally.

Russia is a signatory to numerous international human rights treaties - including the European Convention on Human Rights. We call on you to urgently speak out and hold Russia accountable to its treaty obligations - and stand with LGBT Russians whose ability to speak for themselves is under attack.

      Despite our international uproar, conservative lawmakers in Saint Petersburg passed the notorious "propaganda" law to silence any reading, writing, speech or debate on anything "gay" - and the governor signed it in to law.

      Our friends in Russia are determined to challenge the law - in the courts and on the streets - and we'll be with them every step of the way. Their message is simple but clear, despite attempts by the government to make LGBT people "disappear": We will not be silenced.
