Let's break the law in Russia ⚽️🌈

**If you're in Russia, we recommend you DO NOT take part in this campaign, as it might compromise your safety.**
Dear friends,
It's time to break the law in Russia.
A few years ago, Russian authorities approved a so-called "propaganda law". They made it illegal to say, do, or write anything considered "gay": from holding a Pride parade, to kissing someone of the same gender, or even waving a rainbow flag in public.
In a few hours, all eyes will be on Russia as they host the World Cup, the world's biggest single-sport event.
This is the best chance we've had in years to challenge this outrageous law and stand in solidarity with LGBT+ people in Russia!
If you're not in Russia, below are a few "illegal" things you can do to break the Russian "propaganda law" – without leaving your home.
A GIF alternating images of things that would be considered illegal under Russia's propaganda law, like same-sex couples kissing and holding hands, and someone holding up a rainbow flag.
To join in, all you have to do is post something like this on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram:
  • A photo holding up a rainbow flag;
  • A video or photo of you kissing your same-sex partner;
  • A sentence, a poem, anything about being LGBT+;
  • Or one of these images!
MOST IMPORTANTLY: use #WorldCup and tag yourself in Moscow, Russia, where the opening ceremony will take place.
If thousands of us take part, anytime people search for World Cup updates on social media – in Russia or anywhere – we'll be right there, showing Russian authorities that they can't intimidate us.
Homophobic mobs in Russia have also announced their intention to hunt down and hurt LGBT+ people attending the games. If we take over social media, we'll send them on a wild goose chase, looking for people who aren't even there.
Thanks for going All Out,
Matt and the rest of the All Out team.

P.S. If you're in Russia, activists have set up helplines to support LGBT+ people that run into trouble during the World Cup. You can find those helplines and more info here.
