With Russia's anti-gay legislation being but into place, there is uncertainty over whether or not the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi should be supported or boycotted. We discuss how different organizations are responding to the anti-gay legislation. GLAAD's Omar Sharif Jr. and RUSA Yelena Goltsman, Founder and Co-President, RUSA LGBT, speak with HuffPost Live about the draconian anti-LGBT laws in Russia, as well as the role of the Olympics in speaking out against the law.

GLAAD is working with RUSA LGBT, an organization of Russian and Russian-speaking LGBT advocates to bring media attention to Russia's anti-LGBT laws.
