Athlete Ally's Hudson Taylor and AllOut's Andre Banks Talk 'Principle 6' with Thomas Roberts: VIDEO


Yesterday we reported on the collaboration between Athlete Ally, AllOut, and American Apparel on a new 'Principle 6' line of protest merchandise meant to draw attention to the plight of LGBT people during the Sochi Games in Russia.

The apparel, they argue, is a way to avoid the country's ban on 'gay propaganda' while at the same time expressing solidarity with those affected by oppressive anti-gay laws.

Watch the interview, AFTER THE JUMP...

  6. Too bad the t-shirt wasn't available when Roberts was in Russia for the Miss Universe pageant. He totally would totally have wanted to wear one.

  7. I find it creepy that a gay man is that absorbed into gay rights.

  9. To Perry:

    How about the fact that so many trolls on the Internet preaching homophobic bigotry seem to be obsessed with gay anal sex? In fact, they cannot seem to stop thinking about anal sex with other men. That may strike a great many people as being a lot creepier.

  10. When Thomas Roberts was in Russia, he did not just use his visibility as host of the Miss Universe Pageant to show the Russian people an out and openly-gay man in a public, positive role, but he, also, used his media presence there to report on the plight of gays in Russia and to interview the Russian anchor who had lost his job for publicly coming out as gay.

    Now, Thomas Roberts is using his public position to promote this campaign that will bring attention to the ideals of the Olympic movement in Sochi, Russia, and that everyone will know is primarily about gay rights as part of overall Olympic and human rights. This will certainly promote awareness amongst the more enlightened segments of Russian society.

    Thomas Roberts should be applauded for this and not criticized.

  11. @RonCharles - the Russian people had NO IDEA Thomas Roberts was gay. The entire Russian broadcast was censored not that it would have mattered because Roberts was forbidden from even talking about anything gay (i.e., that would have been promoting) and Trump made it clear Roberts was to do nothing to jeopardize the pageant.

    It is ridiculous for so many of you naive Thomas supporters to try and justify or cover up his personal desire to sell out the gay community for fame, money and celebrity status. Weir has done the same, if not worse.

  12. BTW, the interview with the Russian anchor was not broadcast within Russia so the Russian people were kept in the dark.

  13. There is nothing "creepy" about the handsome Mr Taylor.

  14. Uncle Tom. Only what's in his own best interest. Like a check from Mr. Trump. A check he didn't give to any LGBT organizations. F him.
