Since the passage of sweeping Anti-Homosexual Laws within Russia, the lives of homosexuals there have come under ever increasing threats. Gay men have been abused from St. Petersburg to the Urals. Right wing groups have solicited, abused, beaten, tortured and murdered Gay men with impunity, These atrocities cannot go unanswered. The very credibility and spirit of the Olympic Games is quite frankly at stake here. The Civilized world cannot overlook these atrocities any longer.
