In recent months, a wave of anti-LGBT voices have been dominating Indonesian news and media. GLAAD has been working with several activists and organizations on the ground to support LGBT Indonesians in this difficult time.
During the 2014 Sochi Olympic, the conversation about LGBT Russians spread globally. Just months after the closing ceremony, that same conversation seems to be put on the back burner as LGBT Russians continue to struggle with safety in their own country.
The site published over a thousand of letters from teenagers who shared their stories. In the letters many discuss discrimination and other issues they face.
Just weeks before the Opening Ceremonies in Sochi, Russia, Olympic Village "mayors" have spoken in favor of the anti-LGBT "propaganda law."
A festival Celebrating Russian Voices will include numerous readings and panel discussions targeting the Russia’s Anti-LGBT laws. The festival aims to cover several topics related to the LGBT rights such as sport, performance, LGBT as well as Olympic history and how they relate to the propaganda laws.
