NO FREEDOM UNTIL WE ARE EQUAL


(from: Shane Bitney Crone
)





And this is the video that got it all started:




Please remember his videos on Spirit Day and on Voting Day

He wants what Canada got in 2006: Marriage equality
Friday morning we learned that Putin's courts formally banned Pride marches for 100 years in Moscow. Then the news broke that anti-gay activists are using the government's gay gag laws to sue Madonna for $10,000,000 in "moral damages" because she spoke up for gay Russians in a concert this week. If that wasn't enough, punk band Pussy Riot was sentenced just this morning to two years in prison for speaking out against the government. The judge cited "homosexual propaganda" as one reason to bring the hammer down on the three young women - two of them moms.

Enough is enough. In days Putin is going to be face to face with all the leaders of the world at a high profile, media packed United Nations Meeting in New York.  If we move fast, we can ignite a global media firestorm that embarrasses Putin's government and gets his allies and corporate backers to push him to change course - freeing Pussy Riot and ending the crackdown against LGBT Russians.

Will you take just one minute to stand up with our friends in Russia? Every voice counts and it will take a tidal wave of support to force leaders around the world to act:

It's like Putin's government is trying to make enemies. When the first bill to shut up lesbian, gay, bi and trans activists was passed in St. Petersburg, many thought it would never be enforced. To date, there's been over 75 arrests under the gay gag rule - and now the members of feminist punk band Pussy Riot are among its most famous accused.

Putin's Russia is a silenced dome - the one remaining pressure point is to publicly shame him and the actions of his government in front of the leaders of every country around the world.  With Pride officially banned, gays formally silenced in St. Petersburg and Pussy Riot shipped off to prison, Putin is counting on his critic's voices to fade away.  He is counting on us to shut up.  Our first petition against St. Petersburg's gay gag rule reached over 272,000 people - but we think we can double that.  

This goes way beyond Russia. Once the first gay gag rule passed in St. Petersburg, more were passed in regions around Russia with another proposed at the national level. Then it spread. In partnership with Ukrainian activists, we've already shelved a similar law in Ukraine, for now. And there are even more proposed in Hungary, Moldova and Lithuania.

President Putin doesn't want to be on the "world's most hated" list while he's attending cocktail parties at the UN - let's make sure he can't avoid the riot. With your voice, we can build the largest petition ever delivered to a world leader at the UN - will you sign now?

The end of "gay cures"? Spread the word
The campaign to stop gay "cure" sessions worldwide has sparked a global outcry. The French government has launched an investigation into these false treatments. And in Argentina, the scheduled "cure" session was shut down after our campaign made national news. We've got these "ex-gay" organizers on the run, but we can't get too comfortable.
With 2 down, we have 8 more countries to go. This week alone, Desert Stream Ministries (the organizers of these dangerous gay "cure" seminars) is taking their quack teachings to the UK, Australia and Finland. We need to keep the pressure on and we have no time to lose.
The goal is now 100,000. 64,000 have signed. Won't you? See the link 2 comments below in my July 14 message

I just read a post on the Wipeout Homophobia Facebook page and this is basically what they posted (I can't seem to find the post right now, if I see it again I'll edit).

A guy has a boyfriend in a mental hospital. Guy goes to visit boyfriend. Nurse asks who he is. Guy says, "I'm his partner."

Nurse says, "Oh, like partners-in-crime?"

"No. He's my boyfriend," says the guy. Then the nurse goes nuts and starts screaming at him saying stuff like "that's inapropriate!", etc.... End result? The guy is no longer allowed to see his own boyfriend in the hospital! We are now calling the hospital and telling them that we do not appreciate homophobes in our country, especially in places where they are supposed to HELP people, NOT make them feel worse! I already called twice.

Here's the number! PLEASE CALL THEM! (732) 914-3800.

The end of "gay cures"? Spread the word

For the past 30 years, phony "gay cures" have pushed thousands of gay and lesbian people around the world to self-destructive behavior and even suicide. This needs to stop.

Last week, the leading organization behind these "gay cures" publicly acknowledged that they were a fraud. But one major splinter group, "Desert Stream", is refusing to bring this lucrative business to end.

We call on you to denounce and ban these "gay cures" now - and prevent Desert Stream from doing more harm.

I just signed a petition to put a stop to Desert Stream, an ex-gay fundamentalist organization who claim they can 'cure' homosexuality and are planning 'treatment' sessions in 10 countries all over the world right now.

This has to stop. The ex-gay movement is cracking up - and we need an international outcry to stop Desert Stream and finally put an end to "gay cures" around the world. Will you join me by adding your name to the call for an international ban on "gay cures" right now? All Out will deliver the signatures directly to Health Ministers in Argentina, France, Finland, UK, Lithuania, Netherlands and the USA - where the next "treatment sessions" are planned.

Will you sign a petition to put an end to "corrective treatment"? There is no time to waste:

Help us reach our goal of 50,000 signatures
