#LoveAlwaysWins highlights plight of LGBT athletes at upcoming Winter Games in Russia (VIDEO)

As part of their campaign calling on the Russian government to stop the crackdown against lesbian, gay, bi and trans people that is fuelling anti-gay violence, All Out have produced a video ahead of the Sochi Winter Games. All Out’s petition urging leaders around the world and within Russia to work to eliminate all anti-gay laws and protect all citizens from violence and discrimination in Russia has now reached 378,658 signatures.

From the All Out’s Web site, “The countdown is on for Russia’s winter Olympics and, very soon, all eyes will be on them. The Olympic Games are our best chance to end Russia’s outrageous anti-gay laws – but to do it, it’s going to take lots more of us to hear about what’s happening in Russia.

Watch this beautiful 2-minute video, and please share it with your family and friends. You can also sign the petition here: www.allout.org/en/actions/russia-attacks
