With the 2014 Winter Olympics underway, HRC has taken to the digital airwaves to show solidarity with LGBT Russians. In addition to the celebrities that have already joined the campaign, partnering with social media influencers across the country including Miles Jai, Matthew Lush, Michael Rizzi and Cameron Elder and many others, HRC’s empowering #LOVECONQERSHATE message has the power to be seen by millions of people across the world.
By wearing HRC's Russian Love Conquers Hate tee and sharing on social media, these influencers have increased awareness of the campaign and further spurred support for LGBT Russians.
With 100% of the proceeds from the purchase of HRC's Russian Love Conquers Hate shirt going directly back to Russian LGBT advocates, these selfies definitely are the change we wish to see in the world.
Check them out on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube or Vine and upload your own using the hashtag #LoveConquersHate. Current influencers include:
