Dan Choi to Russia: “Love is Worth It”

Dan Choi has taken the LGBT movement by storm over the past year in fighting to end “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.   Follow Dan’s tweets here.

Now he is going global taking on Russia, and standing in solidarity with LGBT brothers and sisters in one of the most oppressive countries. You can follow the live blogging here at the Moscow Gay Pride Blog.

Here’s hoping the US State Department makes a statement condemning the violence.

The following landed in Act On Principles inbox this morning….

Released. No charge, no fine. Russians stay in police custody probably overnight.
Few bruises on left leg, scratches and swelling right ear. Punched in the face 5 times. Still alive. Overall best pride march yet.
Looking forward to Kansas on 6/22-26
Hillary Clinton still needs to say something about the Russian ban on this freedom of expression. We were absolutely non-violent.
My twitter feed has some pics from the jail, and other details from the event.
Love is worth it.

Thank you Dan. We stand with you in solidarity.
