On December 19, 2012, the State Duma of the Russian Federation will consider in the first reading a draft law banning the so-called “propaganda of homosexualism” nationally. The Russian LGBT Network launched a campaign aimed at preventing the inclusion of Article 6.13.1 in the Code of Administrative Offences and at raising awareness of the authorities and society about the dangerous consequences of the law on “propaganda”. Now we turn to the international community – LGBT and human rights organizations, activists, and all like-minded people – for your support of the campaign.
Here are several suggestions on what one could do
If you have any questions regarding the development and the campaign, or if you have any suggestions, please send an email to Maria Kozlovskaya ([email protected]) and Anastasia Smirnova ([email protected]).
Thank you in advance for your consideration and solidarity!
