Exposed: Brian Brown exporting hate to Russia.
Brian Brown, President of the National Organization for Marriage and one of the most outspoken figures in the American anti-LGBT equality movement, is at it again, spreading hate and damaging lies.
Only this time – he's taken his bigotry abroad to Russia.
In June, Brown traveled to Moscow to advocate for a bill that bans the adoption of Russian children by gay and unmarried couples at home and abroad, as well as single people in countries where same-sex marriage is legal.
With Brown and his fellow anti-LGBT antagonists facing a losing battle for discrimination here at home, he decided to take his hateful lies on a worldwide jaunt.
Brown's efforts were unfortunately successful, and President Vladimir Putin signed this discriminatory bill into law. Already, Russians can be arrested or fined just for promoting pro-LGBT causes, making Russia a battleground country in the fight for equality.Meanwhile, thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Russians are being targeted and harassed by hate groups and physically harmed while videos of their torture are posted to YouTube.
Amid this hatred, new legislation has been introduced that would make being gay (or being presumed to be gay) a basis for denying parental custody. Yes, children could be ripped from their families simply because their parents have been suspected of being gay.
As the situation in Russia escalates, support for equality in America is growing, which is why we can't let extremists like Brian Brown misrepresent our views abroad.
