Great job by reporter Jamie Kirchick on RT (Russia Today).

The Box Turtle Bulletin has a followup on what happened to Kirchick after his television interview which, by the way, was in Stockholm.  It seems the Russian government has long tentacles. 

He has since said the taxi driver in the car he was in on his way to the airport in Sweden when the taxi driver received a phone call instructing him to drop Kirchick off at the side of the road.

“So about halfway down the highway on the way to the airport, my driver gets a phone call from his boss saying that the car ride has been cancelled and that he’ll have to drop me off on the side of the road,” he said.

“And I told him that I would pick up the tab. But at the end, actually, at the airport, he said that the ride was free, so maybe we have some anti-Putin activists in the Swedish taxi company.”

Pro wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin has come out in favor of equal marriage.

(NSFW: this two-minute interview clip with Ted Fowler is f---in' replete with swearwords.)

Notably, on nonaccepting churches: "Which one of these motherfuckers talked to God, and God said same-sex marriage was a no-can-do?"

That reminds me of's study where people tried to assess "the will of God" about same-sex marriage through prayer. 2/3 of the participants felt they received an answer. Some of these people approved of SSM at the beginning of the study, some disapproved; but every single answer confirmed the person's initial opinion!

Not one felt that God disagreed with them.

The Box Turtle Bulletin (Link) has a very interesting article/editorial on why the LGBT issue in Russia is so radically different and more complex than in Westernized countries.  

Essentially, the Russians hold a skewed view that homosexuality is an import from 'The West.'   They view outside calls for tolerance as meddling by foreigners and an actual threat to Russian nationalism. 

Whereas LGBT discrimination in the West has largely been based on religious views, in Russia the issue strikes to the core of the Russian sovereignty. 

It's a very complex problem.  I urge you to read the article.

That bra ad is amazing! Thanks, Ruth!

(Trying to embed it here... clicking "HTML" twice gives me the more complete set of buttons.)


And I completely agree with NemoRosa700's comment which is also a spoiler -- watch the video first! "She's hot. He's hot. End of story." (Drag over it, or Select All, to reveal.)

Fantastic bra ad. Very cute. I can just imagine the right-wing backlash if that were shown here in the US. Now that would be a memorable Superbowl ad.

Thai ad for a push up bra.

The embed code doesn't seem to work. Here's a link.

I commend the "only" openly gay Olympiad speed skater for going public on television before the games.  It is my hope that in the coming months there will be an organized surge of support and joining of forces with other LGBT athletes as a plan to be visible and proud while in Russia.  If there's one thing we (the gays) do well, it's networking, organizing and executing a good protest. 

A boycott will not work and only further hurts those we are trying to help.  But visibility of a large, unified group can send a strong message.  Just like the "black fist" in the 1970's, the rainbow colors should be the message of anti-gay defiance in 2014.  It's time for athletes to come out and take a stand.

Daniel, thanks for introducing me to the 76 Crimes blog.  I've added it to my news feed, as LGBTQI rights and all human rights around the world are important to me.
