Sir Ian McKellen Pens Letter To Vladimir Putin In Protest Of Russia’s Gay Propaganda Ban

ian-mckellenThis letter is written to indicate that many senior members of the international scientific community show solidarity with politicians, artists, sports people and many others who have already expressed their abhorrence for the Russian government’s actions against its gay citizens… Protest is never easy but we hope that by expressing opposition to the new legislation it might be possible to encourage the Russian State to embrace the 21st Century humanitarian, political and inclusive democratic principles which Mikhail Gorbachev worked so hard to achieve.”

 

An excerpt from an open letter sent by the acclaimed actor and 27 Nobel Laureates to make public their protest of Russia’s gay propaganda ban, published in The Independent
