To Russian LGBT With Love 

Regarding the current anti-LGBT atrocities being committed in Russia. With the Winter Olympics rapidly approaching and potentially putting both fans and athletes in real personal danger, now is the time for action.

As the host borough for the Olympics last year, Hackney is an ideal place for discussions on this subject to take place.

Culture Device, TEDxHackney, Dalston Superstore and The Queer Archives are collaborated to create an event to tackle the humanitarian crisis of the LGBT community of Russia.

We invited a list of influential speakers, activists, athletes and artists to look into this crisis and help find a solution and raise awareness. WATCH THE VIDEOS
