Pole vault great condemns homosexuality at worlds

Fuck you, bitch


Also:

Quote:
What an incredible week it's been! The eyes of the world have been on Russia's anti-gay crackdown, and All Out members have been driving the news. Our 350,000 strong petition has been reported on global news networks including CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera and NBC, and we've made a splash in national newspapers including Le Monde and the New York Times.

We want to build the pressure on President Putin to repeal the anti-gay law before the Winter Olympics, by getting world leaders to speak out. And, it's working.

Hours after our petition delivery in Switzerland, the Olympic Committee said they want more "clarification" from the Russian government about the anti-gay law. US President Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron have now spoken out too.

The Olympics will start in less than 200 days. We have lots to do together to make sure the pressure keeps rising. There are 1.8 million All Out members – that's lots of great minds and ideas. Can you take a few minutes to help decide what we should do together next?

Take the quick survey:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/allou...-en?c=19579714

The next few weeks will be vital in shaping the direction of our campaign to help stop the anti-gay crackdown in Russia. In early September, world leaders from the leading "G20" group of nations will meet in Russia. Around the same time, the Olympic Committee will elect a new President.

There could be lots of opportunities to build pressure on President Putin and Russian leaders to stop the anti-gay crackdown.

Should we be asking more Presidents, Prime Ministers and Sports Ministers to speak out against the anti-gay crackdown?
Should we up the pressure on the Olympic Committee?
Is it important to target businesses that sponsor the Olympics and ask them to speak out?
Should we go direct to athletes and ask them to show support for gay people within Russia during the Olympics?

Click here to take the secure survey – it'll only take 3 minutes.
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/allou...-en?c=19579714

A few weeks ago, 3,745 members of All Out chipped in to help build a fighting fund to keep pushing back against the Russia crackdown. That means we now have lots of options open to us and need to decide on our plan.

The All Out staff team works closely with experts and activists from within Russia itself, and around the world to help make sure our plans have the best chance of success.

But as a people-powered movement for love and equality, we're only powerful when we work together to combine our time, energy and ideas.

Can you give your view on what to do next? Take the survey:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/allou...-en?c=19579714


Thanks for going All Out,

Andre, Guillaume, Hayley, Marie, Sara, and the rest of the All Out team.


PS: All Out members work together for love and equality all over the world. Over 60,000 All Out members have just signed a petition against a dangerous new policy in Australia. Gay, lesbian, bi or trans people seeking refuge by boat are being sent on to a country where being gay is illegal. Read more and sign the petition: https://www.allout.org/australian-home

I mean hell, theres no definitive answer on what makes 1 a homo as it is, so for Christie to say "its from birth, and leave the chillens alone" is admirable, but also way too presumptous.

Wentworth was invited to the Russian film festival and responded by saying As a gay man I simply cannot attend. We got ourselves another good one. GOOD FOR HIM!

Quote:
Very soon, world leaders including President Obama will meet President Putin in St Petersburg, Russia. UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Brazil's President Rousseff, French President Hollande and many more will all be there for a global summit.

Imagine if just before the big meeting, tens of thousands of people gather together around the world, to speak out against Russia’s anti-gay law. That could be the headline that every world leader wakes up to.

If the Russian anti-gay law is all over the news, world leaders will feel pressure to respond with strong statements against the law. Some of them might even go the extra mile, and call on Putin to repeal the law right there at the meeting.

To make it happen, tens of thousands of people will join Global Speak Out events near them on Tues 3 September. Can you join in?

Take a look at our website to see if there is a USA event near you. If there isn't one already, perhaps you could organise your own? Our website has a handy guide to help you set up an event where you live.

Click here to get started:
https://www.allout.org/russiaevents

The more events that take place in the USA and around the world, the more newspapers will report it as a huge global event, and the more likely it will be that world leaders will call on President Putin to repeal the anti-gay law.


If you’re in New York:

Can you come to No. 9 E 91st Street, New York City at 6.30pm on Tuesday 3 Sept, to join hundreds of people calling on Obama to ask President Putin to repeal the law?

Lots of different organisations and people will be going along on the day, to speak out for Russia together. If you use Facebook, click here to RSVP on the event page. You could also print out an All Out poster to take along on the day.


For the last two years, All Out members have been speaking out against the Russian government’s anti-gay crackdown and the surge in brutal murders.

We can do powerful things together when we meet up. Recently, 50 members of All Out gathered in Switzerland to hand in our 350,000 strong petition to the Olympic Committee. We also surprised Russia’s ambassador in New York, when we handed the petition to him personally at his house.

Let’s turn Tuesday 3 September into a huge day of love and hope for Russia, and push our world leaders to call on President Putin to repeal the anti-gay laws.

If you’re outside New York City, click here:
https://www.allout.org/russiaevents

If you’re in New York, come to 9 E 91st Street at 6.30pm on Tues 3 Sept. RSVP here:
https://www.facebook.com/events/574309395940421/


Thanks for going All Out,

Andre, Guillaume, Hayley, Jeremy, Marie, Mike, Sabelo, Tile, and the rest of the All Out team.



PS: Here’s how amazing it can be when All Out members get together - click to watch the video of the petition delivery to the Olympic Committee in Switzerland.


PPS: Results of the survey: 27,563 All Out members filled in the survey on next steps - incredible. Getting world leaders to speak out came out as the top priority. More than a third of people also said they’d be keen to go to an event, so hopefully lots of us can get along on Tues 3rd Sept.

The top answers to the question of who should we target were: Presidents, Prime Ministers, and Sports Ministers; the Olympic Committee, and global corporations. The top answers for things people would like to were: forward the petition to family and friends, send an email to get people or organisations to speak out, attend an event, and chip in a donation. The areas where All Out should most focus, top priorities were: ending laws that make it illegal to be gay, ending hate crimes, discrimination and violence, and stopping organisations that offer gay ‘cures’.

It’s not perfectly scientific, but it gives the staff team a really good idea of the direction All Out members want to go, and will help guide decisions about what to do next in the coming months. Thanks for being part of it.
