Russian athletes join the NOH8 campaign!

While participating in World Outgames 2013 in Antwerp, athletes from Team Russia posed with the NOH8 Campaign to protest and bring more attention to Russia’s recent “gay propaganda” ban

For those who aren’t aware, World Outgames is an “international sports event [that] is organised by the LGBT-community but is open for everyone, regardless  what their preferences are.”

I’m sure the athletes above faced plenty of ridicule for being so out, visible, and supportive of the LGBT community. Cheers to them!
