Since the passing of the Anti-Gay Propaganda law in Russia, there have been a series of attacks on LGBT people and continuous oppression of our community. Glasgow should remove the Twinning Agreement with Rostov-on-Don, Russia, to stand in solidarity with the LGBT Community in Russia, and against such homophobic laws.

Letter to
The Lord Provost of Glasgow Cllr Sadie Docherty
Remove Twinning Agreement with Rostov-on-Don, Russia.

Since the passing of the Anti-Gay Propaganda law in Russia, there have been a series of attacks on LGBT people and continuous oppression of our community.

Glasgow should remove the Twinning Agreement with Rostov-on-Don, Russia, to stand in solidarity with the LGBT Community in Russia, and against such homophobic laws.

We have an opportunity to call on Russia to abolish this draconian law, and Glasgow must take the lead in supporting the LGBT Community during this tough time.

I call on you, as Lord Provost, to remove Glasgow's Twinning Agreement with Rostov-on-Don in Russia and make it clear to diplomats in Russia and across the world that Glasgow will not support such oppression on a community.
