Over the past couple of months, I have been following with increasing apprehension the news from Russia about its treatment of its gay population. Yesterday, a blogger at Gawker summarized the recent events in a good (but disturbing) entry. I won’t rehash the information since the links are all embedded there, but it’s been hard to see the escalating violence documented. It’s going to be interesting to see if this starts to affect the upcoming Olympics. How long will the world be willing to ignore the human rights’ violations (much less the arrests of gay foreigners)?
