In recent years Russia has become a more and more hostile place for lesbian, gay, and transgendered people. Recently a law was enacted nationwide that criminalises the distribution of "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations" to minors — a law so broad that it effectively prohibits any promotion of LGBT equality in public.

At the same time, brazen violent attacks on LGBT people by extremists have increased.

On September 5 the leaders of the G20 group of nations will meet for a summit in St. Petersburg. You can use this web site to tell each of the G20 leaders that you want them to pressure the Russian leadership to respect the human rights of LGBT people.
