As we approach the opening ceremony of the winter olympics President Putin has extended a warm welcome to all olympians including lesbian, gay and bisexual participants.
Channel 4’s Despatches documentary “Hunted” shows the reality behind this facade highlighting the brutal and humiliating treatment of gay and lesbian people, in Russia, by organised and state aided gangs.

If, after watching the documentary, you would like to do something tangible, next time you order a vodka and coke make sure its not Russian (try Polish or Finnish or one of the many great American vodkas). Alternatively why not join our protest on Friday 7th February 2014 at Belfast City Hall from 5.00 pm to coincide with the opening of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. We would love to see you.
