Biggest Sochi Olympics Fails: Gay Rights
Homosexuality is a touchy subject in Russia, but it looks like the country’s homophobia is finally being addressed … perhaps.
Two days before the Sochi Winter Olympics began, activists from 20 cities demanded that Olympic sponsors condemn a Russian anti-gay law. They are protesting against a law that bands any display or mention of homosexuality in public.
Unless the Russian government changes the country’s laws on homosexuality, gay rights activists will probably play an important role in the Sochi Olympics.
