Homophobia is rife in Russia. LGBT people are facing increasingly harsh treatment at the hands of authorities. Attacks on gay people are rising, in a country where homosexuality has been classified as a mental illness since 1999. In short, the Russian gay community needs help. So, this Christmas, send something To Russia with Love.
There are 7 limited edition, hand-painted, sets of Russian dolls. Featuring artist's renders of five great gay icons, they are crafted to raise awareness, and money, for the Russian gay community. Exactly the sort of thing that would get you arrested in Russia.
To Russia with Love is taking a break for Christmas and the New Year. Join us in January 2014 for the auctions of the final two sets of Gay Russian Dolls.
