  • Got my Principle 6 shirt from American Apparel today. Looks and feels great (not just the shirt, but supporting the Russian LGBT community).

    Only two weeks until the Winter Olympics. I encourage anyone with a little money to head over to the AA store and snag something from the P6 line to help the cause.

          • If you live near New York, are you free tomorrow (Wednesday 5th Feb) to come along to an All Out event about Russia? They're happening in 19 cities so far!

            Just 2 days before the Olympics, it'll be our biggest ever chance to get Olympic sponsors to speak out against Russia's anti-gay laws, to help build pressure on the Russian government to scrap them.

            The office team has designed some great posters you can print out and take along. And when All Out members email in photos, we'll send them to hundreds of journalists worldwide and follow up with phone calls.

            That'll help make sure the top executives at McDonald's, Coca Cola and the rest read reputation-damaging media stories the day before the Opening Ceremony. It could threaten to blow their expensive Olympics advertising campaigns out of the water, if they donít speak out.

            But it needs lots of us to show up on the day! Can you make it?

            • It's working. The huge corporation AT&T, a sponsor of the US Olympic Committee, has condemned Russia's anti-gay law! Now one big sponsor has spoken out, the pressure is doubled on others.

              If lots more people sign the petition, global sponsors McDonald's and Coca-Cola could soon decide their multi-million dollar Olympic ad campaigns are in critical danger of being ruined by bad publicity Ė and the only way they can fix it is by speaking out.

              While corporations hesitate, new footage has just been released showing young Russians hunted down by anti-gay gangs. Can you share the petition with friends and family and ask them to sign now?

              This good news came as All Out members gathered in more than 20 cities around the world yesterday, calling on Olympic sponsors to speak out. In London, we handed the 130,000-strong petition direct to McDonald's Head of Communications, in the glare of TV cameras from CNN and Al-Jazeera.

              In Mexico, the local Russian cultural attache argued with All Out members until he was ushered away by police for making a scene. In Times Square, New York, All Out members gathered in front of a flagship McDonald's on a freezing winter's night.

              And in St. Petersburg, Russia, incredibly brave activists held up signs at the Sochi Olympics countdown clock reading "Berlin 1936 = Sochi 2014" comparing the Games to those held in Germany before the Second World War.

              Russia isn't the only country in the world with anti-gay laws that are forcing people to live in silence and secrecy, and fuelling violent attacks. It's happening in Uganda, Nigeria, Cameroon and too many more.

              All Out members have a chance now to force some of the world's biggest, most powerful companies to act on the principles they claim to hold. And not just in countries where it's convenient and popular for them to do so, but in the countries where it really, really matters that they speak out, because lives are on the line.

              Please sign:

              Thanks for going All Out,

              Andre, Guillaume, Hayley, Jeremy, Leandro, Marie, Pablo, Sara, Wesley and the rest of the All Out team.


              PS: 1.9 million All Out members have won over companies before. Like when we got Apple to remove a dangerous gay "cures" app, and when we got Avis, Budget Car Rental, Expedia.com and Hotels.com to cut their ties with an organsiation that allowed customers to donate part of their purchases to hate groups. We can do it again: https://www.allout.org/olympic-sponsors

                • Mizzou Defensive End Comes Out Before NFL Draft

                  Not sure if this should go here or the NFL thread.

                  Kind of surprising to me that the first openly gay NFL player will be a kid who hasn't even been drafted yet. Brave of him to do, and good for him.

                      Word! It's somewhat of a Jackie Robinson landmark event.

                      I look forward to the day where a gay athlete becomes a non-issue, just like a black baseball player.

                      • I think that every time man. Eventually it will happen though.
                        I LOVE conspiracy theorists. They are like human versions of the cymbal clapping, dancing monkeys. No one takes them all that seriously and they get bored with them after about 10 minutes.

                        • When I read the story, I took a more pragmatic approach; hoping his stock drops far enough that the Green Packers are able to scoop him up. Who cares who is doing what in a bedroom? If you can get after the QB come game time, you can sack or be sacked by whomever you choose in the bedroom.
