Published August 17th: In Moscow, Pride marches have just been banned for 100 years. Anti-gay activists are using the Russian government's gay gag laws to sue Madonna for $10,000,000 because she spoke up for the LGBT community. And punk band Pussy Riot has been sentenced to 2 years in prison for their musical protest – deemed "homosexual propaganda."

Add your voice to the international outcry against Putin before he attends the September United Nations Leaders meeting in New York.

Putin has thrown down a gauntlet to defenders of human rights around the world - let's rise to his challenge and go All Out!

TO: PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN

The world is watching with horror as homophobia dominates Russia and dissenting voices are being silenced, sued, and imprisoned.

We urge you to put an end to this persecution and respect the human rights of all Russians regardless of their sexual orientation or political beliefs.
