The Human Rights Campaign is looking to give Russia's LGBT Community a big boost of support leading up to the Sochi Olympic Games with the launch of its "Love Conquers Hate" solidarity campaign today.

Via press release:

Each photo that is shared with the campaign hashtag will be aggregated at www.loveconquershate.org. 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the t-shirts will go to a fund that supports LGBT advocates in Russia.

The campaign site also features a diverse group of prominent celebrities, athletes, and politicians who are speaking out in support of the LGBT community in Russia and against the country's homophobic laws. Participants include: Jonah Hill, Kristen Bell, Fergie, Kelly Osbourne, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, America Ferrera, Ricky Martin, Perez Hilton, Anthony Bourdain, Wentworth Miller, Tim Gunn, Jason Collins, and many others. 

Said HRC President Chad Griffin:

"Love and equality are universal values that aren't limited by language or national borders. We stand with Russia's LGBT community and their allies, and we are committed to doing as much as we possibly can to support their efforts to repeal this heinous law."

RoadPope Francis calls 'Extraordinary Synod' on family and marriage: "For Francis, issues of family and marriage are the ones that require deeper interpretation given the signs of the times, and dedicating a synod to the topic suggests he wants to unify church teaching about them. When local church offices around the world make their own decisions about marriage and family—especially about serving communion to divorced and remarried Catholics—the global church as whole becomes divided."

In the United States, young adults in particular fare poorly compared with their international competitors of the same ages — not just in math and technology, but also in literacy."
