WEST HOLLYWOOD—In protest of Vladamir Putin’s oppression against gays in Russia, gay bars and clubs in West Hollywood are protesting Stoli vodka by removing it from their shelves.

 

The country Russia has become increasingly more violent against gays, transgender, bisexual and the lesbian community. On July 3, President Putin signed a law banning Russian born children to be adopted by gay couples and any country where equality rights exist. This is one of Putin’s recent actions to eliminate homosexuals in Russia.

 

The movement to boycott Stoli vodka began in a Chicago bar about a week ago. The movement has quickly spread across America. LGBT activist are pushing to protest the 2014 Winter Games because of the law Putin signed allowing police officers to arrest tourists and foreign nationals that they suspect of being homosexual, lesbian or “pro-gay” and detain them for up to 14 days.

 

This could mean an Olympic athlete, trainer, reporter, family member or fan who is gay or even suspected of being gay could receive jail time. Other laws have been passed in Russia to oppress gays.
