Video: Break The Silence

These brave Russian activists are making sure that LGBT voices are never silenced.

Today, April 17th, is the International Day of Silence. Around the world, communities are drawing attention to the fact that discrimination and violence against LGBT people is happening, and yet is silenced, all over the world.

Russian LGBT activist Polina Andrianova emailed me today. She says:

“On this day, we would like to address each and every one, in Russia and abroad, because we know; acting both individually and together, we can break the silence!”

She urges us all to watch, and to feel, this video. Feel free to share.

Silence can break us – but we can break the silence.
