Tilda Swinton Shows Solidarity with LGBT Community, Raises Rainbow Flag Near the Kremlin
Tilda Swinton's agent Christopher Hodell posted this message from the actress on his Twitter account yesterday: "Please share this message from Tilda: 'In solidarity. From Russia with love.'"
The freedom to be LGBT in Russia has been under severe threat in recent months. Last week President Vladimir Putin signed a law banning "gay propaganda" which bars (and imposes fines for) gay groups, gay books and periodicals, LGBT Pride events, and other "promotions" of homosexuality. He also signed a law banning gay adoption by foreign same-sex couples.
