Send a message to world leaders to condemn proposed homophobic law in St Petersburg!

The Federation of Gay Games has previously partnered with AllOut.com to call for action by FIFA against the lesbophobic coach of the Nigerian national women's football team. We want our readers to be aware of this important appeal that will affect our LGBT friends in Russia:

Political leaders in St. Petersburg are about to vote on law that will make it illegal for any person to write a book, publish an article or speak in public about being gay, lesbian or transgender. The ruling party led by President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin could make millions of people invisible with the stroke of a pen.

Human rights defenders around the country are doing everything they can to stop it. They are risking their freedom to organize flashmobs and protests, but they are afraid that it won't be enough.

Right now, the world needs to speak up and tell Russian authorities to drop the bill. Join this call to leaders around the world to reach out to their counterparts in the Russian government - and ask them to reject this discriminatory and anti-democratic law.

Sign the appeal HERE.
