Support our fight against Russian anti-gay laws!
On June 30 last year Russian president Vladimir Putin signed into law an “anti-gay propaganda” bill, which made it illegal to engage in any behavior that could be considered “gay propaganda.”PutinGayDressUp.com wants to make a playful stand against homosexual discrimination and legal actions taken under the regional anti-LGBT propaganda laws.
And it is really happening! In St. Petersburg in particular, activists and performers, including international superstars like Madonna and Lady Gaga, have faced fines and legal proceedings for expressing support for the local LGBT community. One individual was arrested and fined in St. Petersburg for holding a sign supporting LGBT rights that sated simply “Gay is Normal.” Six LGBT activists were also detained in front of the State Children’s Library in Moscow in July with another “Gay is Normal” banner. And at the end of July, four Dutch videographers filming a documentary on LGBT rights in Russia were briefly detained under the federal law, supposedly for interviewing LGBT youth, and then released and deported on a technicality.
Unacceptable! If you agree, support our fight, dress-up your own gay Putin and share with the world!

But that all changed last night.
The Outs is a 2012 miniseries produced exclusively for Internet distribution. Filmed and set in Brooklyn, New York, the show tells the story of Mitchell , his best friend Oona, and his ex-boyfriend Jack and the trials and tribulations of relationships in New York City. It’s relatable, darkly funny and very well produced. I am surprised Netflix hasn’t picked this up. All 7 episodes are avialable for mass viewing on Vimeo http://vimeo.com/theouts
