Last week, you stood with Sergey, the straight attorney charged for violating St. Petersburg, Russia’s ridiculous new “homosexual propaganda” law. Good news: Russian officials have just delayed his trial to next Monday – buying us precious time to turn up the heat.
Russian politicians want nothing more than for Sergey’s story to disappear from the global media. But by asking influential public figures and entertainers to #StandwithSergey, we can ensure his courageous stand is broadcast worldwide and push officials to back down.
As a straight married man, our friend Sergey Kondrashov is a a powerful spokesperson shining a light on the absurdity of this new anti-gay law in Russia. But at his trial next week he may be fined – or even thrown back in jail – simply for holding a banner calling for equal rights for a family friend who happens to be a lesbian.
Will you take one minute to ask these world leaders and celebrities to #StandwithSergey?
Thanks again for going All Out.
