In just one week the city of Saint Petersburg could pass an outrageous bill that will make it a crime to read, write, speak or meet to discuss anything considered “Gay”.
St. Petersburg is one of Russia’s number one tourist destinations. That’s why an international storm of bad publicity will force the Governor to think twice about the cost of signing this bill.
I’m posting this again because this is important. There is legislation similar to this bill already making it’s way through Tennessee in the USA, if Russia is able to successfully pass this into law, other countries including America will follow suit trying to pass similar legislation.
This bill creates the potential to be fined thousands of dollars for being caught reading, writing, speaking or doing anything that the government considers Gay. It makes Gay, Queer, Trans* things criminal.
Yesterday tumblr was able to produce over 10,000 signatures in 24 hours, today only about 1,000 signatures were made.
Just because you are American or any other nationality doesn’t mean you shouldn’t sign this, because if this passes into law in Russia the threat of it coming to the USA or any other country and being passed into law there becomes very real.
So TL;DR: Sign and reblog this, it’s important.
Amerca! the land of the.. some what, not really free at all! under god we trust. (i love sarcasm.)
