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.
