VIDEO: Russia declares discrimination newest Olympic sport
Monday, February 10, 2014
From the Russia Freedom Fund and Athlete Ally:
Set to the music of King Arivel, the metaphor of a rugby team brutalizing a gay couple represents the horrendous climate for LGBT people not just in Russia, but in other parts of the world as well, including Uganda, Belize, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and the other 76 nations around the world where being gay is still a crime.
The Russia Freedom Fund, Athlete Ally, and CoPilot joined the Fair Games Project to produce the video.
