Stonewall throws resources behind 'Young and Gay in Putin's Russia' film

Gay rights charity Stonewall is promoting a documentary created by media company Vice that investigates how young, gay people in Russia are affected by the country’s new anti-gay propaganda law.

Vice and Stonewall are running a joint media and activation campaign around the film and the issues it raises. This includes a co-hosted screening of the film for Stonewall supporters and invited media. Stonewall will also promote the film to its supporters and on its social media channels.

"When Vice showed us the film, we were extremely impressed by its sensitive and detailed portrayal of what is a very complex issue, and that it spoke extensively to LGB&T activists on the ground in Russia," said Stonewall’s head of policy Sam Dick.
