now i am straight but this really upset me in Russia they are trying to pass a law to make it Illegal to be gay!!!

Dear friend,

I just raised my voice to help stop the anti-gay law in Russia. St. Petersburg is pushing forward a law that would make it illegal for any person to write a book, publish an article or speak in public about being gay, lesbian, bi or transgender - labeling it "homosexual propaganda".

This is outrageous, and now is the time for world leaders to speak up. St. Petersburg's Mayor Poltavchenko, President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin are all pushing for this law and changing their mind won't be easy. The final vote is scheduled for next week and we urgently need every voice.

Will you join me and help stop this horrific bill?

That's no problem like i said it just really bothered me as i have gay friends and they say that if they pass this they wanna try an make it nation wide, to do something like this is just plain wrong. its who these people are and when we show them hatred like this it makes people afraid to be who they are and some even wont accept themselves because of it!
