Be proud in Sochi! Protest homophobic ban on Pride House 2014 at Winter Olympîcs in Sochi, Russia

On Saturday 4 August, in response to an invitation from the Federation of Gay Games, LGBT sport and human rights groups met at Pride House 2012 to discuss action with regard to homophobia in the Olympic Movement. A key action item set was support for a Pride House at the 2014Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Russian authorities have already banned this Pride House project, with the International Olympic Committee refusing to take any action whatsoever to ensure that LGBT athletes, coaches, support staff and visitors will be able to meet in a safe place during these Games.

Based on this goal, the Peter Tatchell Foundation is organising a protest.

All interested in sport free from homophobia are urged to join us: placards will be provided. To indicate your presence please email Peter Tatchell at peteour@petertatchellfoundation.org and Pride House 2012 at pridehouse2012@gmail.com.
