Russia Far From Only Country With Anti-Gay Laws

World leaders resisting calls to boycott 2014 Winter Olympics


A new Russian law that criminalizes "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors" has sparked growing calls from the global gay community and its supporters for a boycott of Russia's upcoming Winter Olympics.

While heads of state like U.S. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron have resisted such calls, they and other high-profile figures and institutions have criticized what appears to be Moscow's increasing anti-gay posture.
