Channel 4's Dispatches program titled 'Hunted' played out on the 5th of February 2014 was disturbing, not Dispatches themselves, I thank them for highlighting what's going on to the rest of the world... it's disturbing to see what other people, like me, a gay individual, have to go through throughout their life in a different country...
...am I privileged? No, absolutely not!
People born the way they are are having to go through this terrible torture, and no thanks to their government people like me are daily having to live in hell. It’s not a privilege for anyone of us to live in such a world. It's horrific!
I wish I could go over to Russia, collect all of the LGBT community and bring them to the UK where they could live as themselves... I can't do that, as much as I'd like too... however what I can do, what we can all do, is show them and the world that we won't tolerate this abuse to people...
Boycott this circus of a Winter Olympics, boycott brands supporting this country, let’s show support in numbers... let’s not ignore it.
I've heard nothing good at all about the Winter Olympics in Sochi... so why is the world getting involved in the circus?!
Media stay away from it, brands that people know and love around the world STAY AWAY!
Let our voices be heard.
I am in no way connected with the following links, I do however support them:
Change.org is the world's largest petition platform, using technology to empower more than 40 million users to create the change they want to see.
Boycott 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia
Sign the petition to Coca-Cola
Coca-Cola: Condemn Russia's brutal anti-gay laws and call for their repeal."
