Best of 2013: Love Conquers Hate
December 30, 2013 by Carolyn Simon, Deputy Director of Digital Media
In 2013, thousands of people joined HRC’s #LoveConquersHate campaign, resulting in a $100,000 contribution to a fund that supports LGBT advocates in Russia.
In November, HRC launched the campaign to support the members of Russia’s LGBT community, who are being targeted by a hateful “anti-propaganda” law that prohibits public support for equality in the country.
Supporters joined the campaign by sharing a photo of themselves wearing the Russian-language version of HRC’s iconic Love Conquers Hate t-shirt on Instagram with the hashtag #LoveConquersHate. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts are being donated to a fund that supports LGBT advocates in Russia.
The campaign has been bolstered by participation from a diverse group of prominent celebrities, athletes and politicians, including Jamie Lee Curtis, Matt Damon, Sarah Silverman, Chelsea Handler, Kevin Bacon, Andy Cohen, Jason Collins, Lori Lindsey, Megan Rapinoe and more.
Join the campaign at www.loveconquershate.org.
